Much like checkers, in Limit Hold'em, where the limits are fixed, there are only so many moves you can make. In No-Limit Hold'em, which in this scenario is chess, you can move your game pieces any which way you like, changing the strategy completely.
Ray Henson and Justin Bonomo made light of this comparison on Twitter moments ago, with Henson welcoming all comers to this "chess tournament."

@Ray_Henson Hard to win at checkers if you're trying to capture pieces without knowing you can jump. June 26 2012
