Usually, the white chip is the lowest valued chip, worth whatever the minimum ante or bet is; a red chip is worth five whites; and a blue-chip is worth 10, 20, or 25 whites or two, four, or five reds. At the beginning of the game, each player buys-in by purchasing a certain number of chips, the amount of buy-in usually remains the same for each player.
The limit for each player is the number of chips in front of the player. If a player has only 10 chips, he/she may bet no more than 10 and they can call any other player's bet to that extent only. In table stakes, no player can withdraw chips from the table or return the chips, until they leave the game. A player can add to their stack but, only between the deal just completed and the beginning of the next deal.
