Well its pretty much the same like the real fish.
Its the one that takes the bait Smile Or the ones who keep eating a bluff and folding.
Also a bad player who loses often money.
They give free napkins at the start of the game for the blood on the lips Smile

it means that if you can´t see a fish at the table- you are the fish Big Smile
Fishes are only gambler without a plan and sharks are happy to eat them. But pokerrooms like her fishes and them they installed a donk protection to generate more rake...

Fish is a funny one - because it is those who take the bait - and get eaten by the 'sharks'. But also it is those who fish (as a verb) - for example those who fish for a flush even though they're not getting good odds to do so.

A fish is really the opposite of an tight-aggressive player, he never raises preflop his strong hands and also never folds his crap hands...

Thats the short version of the definition of a fish player

Macubaas described it pretty good,also a fish will keep checking hoping to make a straight even though he has little chance,same thing with a flush even though he wouldn't have high cards in a flush while the opponent does.
perfect example is = the fish holds 5 8...cards on the table are 7 Q 9 J,
the fish will be hoping for a 6 but doesn't see the danger in a higher straight

I believe everyone has been the fish and played the fish. We've all chased a flush, probably more then once. We all tried to check on good flop hoping to catch another player making the wrong bet so we can take their chips.
The thing is, don't constantly play like a fish because your probably going to lose in the long run. Good Luck to All!

This thread is awesome, it is like if you were asking what you are Big Smile If you really didnt know what fish is in poker, than that means you are in the begining. I see you are new around here, enjoy all the forum and use them to upgrade your knowledge about the game and also some of the strategy you should apply at the tables. Good luck!

man i know the game and i had an idea about what a fish means and i`m not a fish but a lot of novice players when they want to insult someone in poker they use the fish word and i wanted to know what is the fully meaning of that word in poker. now i know and tx. i can ask them what fish means to see if they know because lots of them use the word because they heard it but don`t know the true meaning.
and i`m not new on forum is just i didn`t post but ive been observing and reading.
