Small Stakes or Low Limit?

So what is the difference between "small stakes" and "low limit" poker? The short answer is that there isn't one...

Lee Jones coined the term Low Limit poker in his successful book Winning Low Limit Holdem and "Noted Poker Authority" Ed Miller uses "small stakes" to describe the same game in his book titled Small Stakes Hold 'em: Winning Big with Expert Play. In general "low limit" usually corresponds to any game with a big blind smaller than $5. All online sites provide some sort of small stakes action, with some online cardrooms like carbonpoker.ag providing bets sizes lower than $1 for the big blind. At live rooms in brick and mortar poker rooms, the lowest of the low limit games are usually $1/$2.
