In the rules there is a chat which shows the number of certs a player can have depending on the available companies and number of players. Is this if people want to have a "smaller" game with fewer companies? Or is there a different cert limit depending on the number of floated companies? The board just had a fixed number, and the chart in the book was ambiguous.

For a fixed example, if there are 4p, I thought the cert limit was fixed per the board. But if there are 4 companies in play (so 2 as yet unopened), what is the cert limit?

It is possible that a company will close and the will reduce share limit.

So the cert limit is the one on the board, unless a company is opened and then closed?

The full chart in the rules handles the fairly rare corner case of closed companies. Closing a company affects the certificate limit. See 5.25.

(Note that player bankruptcy does not affect the certificate limit.)
