In order to become a poker expert, it is required to master the art of playing the game along with learning its special terminology.

One of the common terms in poker lingo is “All in”. In poker, “all in” means that all the chips that you have are used for one bet.

“Ante” is another important term that often puzzles poker players especially those who are new to the game. Ante is a very common lingo in poker and it’s usually used in Texas Holdem poker game. Literally, it means a special bet that is placed before the cards are dealt.

Poker is often compared to roller coaster ride because anything is possible. Who knows you may just be on the edge of winning it but then something goes wrong and you lose the game? This experience is very common in any poker game and it’s known by players as “bad beat”. You will often hear these words when a player suddenly loses a game when in fact it has been expected for him/ her to win. Another common term is “blinds”, which literally mean “blind bets”. And if you are interested in the “ins” and “outs: of poker, you should remember these terms. In “blinds”, there are 2 types which are dealt in the game and they were also categorized into small and big accordingly. “As per” is another term that you should know and it pertains to the option taken by 2 players at the same time. This is also known as forced bet.

This term is about the player’s hand that beats the better hand. “Board” is another term that is used by most poker players. Simply to say it’s another term for the table.

In poker, you will not be a good player if you will not come across different lingos such as “button”. It refers to the white button that pertains to the appearance of the dealer in the poker game.
