Fresh Deck Poker: Terms To Know

Here are some general poker terms used within Fresh Deck Poker:

  • All-In - To bet or call by putting all of your chips in the pot. If you do this, other players can still raise, and you can still win the pot at the end.
  • Bet - To be the first person to voluntarily put chips in the hand. Other players must call to continue to play in the hand.
  • Buy-In - The buy-in is the money you need to join a game, which gives you your seat and a certain number of chips. There is always a minimum buy-in, which you’ll need to factor in when budgeting if you decide to participate in the Sit-N-Go tournaments.
  • Call - To put into the pot an amount of money equal to the most recent bet or raise. If you do not call when a bet or raise has been made before you, you cannot continue to play in the hand.
  • Check - You do not need to bet any more chips to stay in the hand. This just passes to action the next player.
  • Chips - Currency used to play poker against other players. Chips can also be used to purchase special items like customizing your avatar or buying unique gifts (or taunts) for other players at the table.
