There has been at least one thread doing just that but I can't seem to find it. There are definitely poker glossaries out there on the net but we can make another one. What particular terms do you not understand cos if we use them frequently it may not occur to us that they are not understood.

Well I guess if we are going to create a poker glossary for all the new members of the forum it should be alphabetical and include even basic terms so anyone who reads a word they don't understand can go to the glossary and easily find the term. So lets start one and add words in...


action flop: a flop where several players are likely to bet
aggressive: describes players who raise a lot
bad beat: losing a hand after getting it all-in good
bankroll: the entire amount of money you have to play poker
(to) bankroll: to give funds to someone to play poker
boat: slang for a full house
the bubble: the last place in a tournament that doesn't pay
button: the position of the dealer
cooler: a sick hand from which there is no escaping
cut-off: the seat immediately to the right of the dealer
deepstack: a player with relatively many chips
donk: exact definitions vary but generally a bad player
drawing hand: a possible hand that hasn't yet been made
equity: the percentages that determine how you should play
fish: a very bad player that chases hands despite bad odds
flipping: (coin flip) an all-in situation where the odds are fifty-fifty
freerolling: playing without any risk of losing money
grind: to complete a bonus by playing small but frequently
heads up: poker between just two players
hold em: short for texas hold em, a variant of poker
instant call: to call without hesitation
limp: to call an unraised bet preflop
loose: a player who calls easily
MTT: multi-table tournament
muck: to not show your hand
the nuts: the best hand possible given the board
omaha: a variant of poker
overbet: to bet a large amount considering pot size
PLO: pot-limit Omaha
priced in: a situation where a call that's usually behind is correct
quads: another way of saying 4 of a kind
rigtard: someone who complains unjustly about poker being rigged
set-mine: to call with a pocket pair hoping to hit three of a kind
short-handed: when there are few players at the table
short-stacked: having relatively few chips
shove: to go all-in
snap call: (see instant call)
stud: another variant of poker
tank: to take a lot of time to act
tilt: a state of mind brought on by losing
under the gun (utg): position first to act preflop
variance: the difference between expected probability and actual outcome



Please feel free to correct my definitions and add to it.

Jomull....You really need to read or study how to play. Its really difficult to just turn up and try and play without truly understanding (or at oleast having a bit of a clue) what everyone is doing in terms of strategy and size of calls etc. There are loads of books and online assistance on many of the better sites, and you will pretty soon stop having to pit up with being called not very friendly names.....and your game and bankroll will improve (maybe!)

Donk and fish are fairly interchangeable these days and I think the original meaning has probably evolved since everyone has jumped on the band wagon. It's not uncommon for people to type FISH in the chat room whenever they are beaten. But I think fish was originally aimed at players who fish for cards and catch despite bad odds but I may be wrong.

I believe it is necessary to either be all-in or to put someone else all-in to qualify as a bad beat since the term implies you get it in good but still lose. Even if your opponent hits a one outer on the river, goes all-in and then you call and see your really bad luck, it is not really a bad beat since you called when you were behind. If no one is all-in, then you can still fold the river so you're not getting it in good, it's just an unlucky hand.

PS I think the term bad beat jackpot is quite misleading since it is really something else. A bad beat jackpot is awarded when there are two really good hands against each other even if one player was always in front. This is in fact more likely to be known as a cooler.
