BAD BEAT: When a player who initially had a substantial statistical lead over an opponent loses his hand to that opponent after the flop, turn, or river.
BAD BEAT STORY: A retelling or recollection of a bad beat. These are often boring tales you already know the end of. For example: “I had ace-king, and my opponent had 2-3. There was an ace on the board. The turn was a 4, and then – Can you believe it? – the river was a 5!”
BB: It stands for “Big Blind”. A blind is an obligatory bet that players have to place before they are dealt any cards. It can also stand for Big Bet. It is understood by the following sentence. i.e, “I hate the games that have an initial BB” (Big Blind). Another example would be, “I always start the game with a BB” (Big Bet).
BB/100: It is a standard measure of the win percentage, which stands for Big Bets per one-hundred poker hands.
B/C: It stands for Bet & Call a Raise. It is an option for players at most poker rooms, and they select it to automatically call any raise. Players only do that when they have a strong hand.
B/F: It is the opposite of the previous one, It is Bet & Fold to a Raise.
BOARD: The community cards that everyone uses in combination with their pocket cards to form the best hand.

BUTTON: The position of the dealer. In live poker, it’s usually denoted by placing a plastic disk in front of the dealer. It rotates clockwise each time the dealer shuffles a new hand. The button is in an advantageous position, the last to bet in a round.

COMMUNITY CARDS: Cards that are dealt face up in the center of the table, available to all players to use in making a hand.
COUNTERFEIT: A duplicate card on the board that greatly devalues your hand. If you have a pair of 6’s in your hand, the board is ace-ace-7-4, and the river card is a 7, you’ve been “counterfeited.” You had two pairs, but now the board has two better pairs. Any other player with a card higher than a 6 in his hand will then beat your hand.
CUT-OFF: To call two or more bets. If a pot has been bet and raised before it gets to you, and you then call, you’re cold calling.
DD: You’re drawing, but it’s futile because there is not one card in the deck that will create a winning hand for you. If you have two pairs and hope to make a full house on the river, but your opponent already has four of a kind, you are “drawing dead.”
DEALER BUTTON: The button (often a plastic disk in live poker) indicates the dealer. It is passed clockwise after every hand.
DRAW: Remaining in a hand in the hopes of improving it. For example, you don’t have anything concrete yet but need one or more cards for a straight or a flush.

HORSE: It is a poker game that does not follow one poker type; instead, it rotates through different poker types that are represented by each letter. These letters are H for Hold ‘Em, O for Omaha, R for Razz, S for Stud, and E for Eight or Better.
IMPLIED ODDS: Taking future calls from your fellow players into consideration when you are drawing to something. If you draw successfully, you expect they’ll call with their hands. These funds are speculative and not concrete, as they aren’t in the middle yet and won’t be unless you hit your card and they call your bets – hence, “implied.”
KICKER: If you have the same hand as another player at showdown, the one with the highest kicker wins the pot. If the board is 7-7-5-5-2, and you have ace-king and your opponent has king-queen, you win because your ace beats his king. Your ace is the “kicker.”

NO-LIMIT: A structure of the game in which players can bet their entire stack. There’s a minimum to what you can bet, but not a maximum.
NUTS: The best possible hand one can have at any given moment. For example, if you have pocket 7’s, and the flop is 7-6-2, you have the “nuts” at this point, as trip 7’s would be the best possible hand. If the turn card is a 5, you would no longer have the nuts, as that honor now goes to anyone holding 8-9, making a straight. If the river is the last 7, you’d again have the nuts, as your hand is once again the best possible hand.
NT: It is what is said to players when they play a good hand but lose. It is short for “Nice Try”.
OFF-SUIT: Holding pocket cards of different suits.
OMAHA: A variety of hold ‘em in which players receive 4 hole cards and must use exactly two of them, together with 3 of the 5 board cards, to make a hand.
OVER-PAIR: In hold ‘em, a pair in the hole that is larger than any community card on the board.
OPEN-ENDED: A straight completed from the outside by one of two possible cards. For example, if your pocket cards are 5-6 and the flop shows 4-7-king, either a 3 or an 8 on the turn or river would complete your open-ended straight. An open-ended straight is twice as likely to hit as a “gutshot.”
OUT: A card that will improve your hand. If all the money is in the middle, and you turn over a pair of kings and your opponent has a pair of aces, you need one of the two remaining kings – your two “outs” – to beat your opponent.
OVER-CARDS: Having cards higher than the board cards or your opponent’s pocket. For example, if it’s heads up and someone’s all-in, the two remaining players would expose their cards. If it is a pair of sevens versus ace-king, the ace and king are referred to as “over-cards.”
PAIR: Two cards of the same rank.
POCKET CARDS: The cards in your hand are not part of the community cards. In Hold’em, it’s your two down cards. In Omaha, it’s your four down cards. Also known as hole cards.

POT-COMMITTED: A situation that likely requires you to call due to the amount of money in the pot vis-a-vis your remaining stack of chips. In these situations, it makes no sense to fold.
POT-LIMIT: A structure of the game in which bets and raises are capped by the current size of the pot.
POT ODDS: The ratio of money in the pot compared to what you need to call to keep playing. For example, suppose there is $100 in the pot. Somebody bets $10, so the pot now contains $110. It costs you $10 to call, so your pot odds are 11-to-1. Do you think the odds of your hand being the best are better than 11-to-1? If so, you should call.
PF: It is short for Pre Flop, which refers to anything that happens before the dealer deals the three cards that represent the flop on the poker table.

SET: Having a pocket pair that hits on the board, making three of a kind.
SHORT STACK: Having fewer chips than the rest of the players at the table or in the tournament.

SIDE POT: Separate from the main pot. If one or more players are all-in, the pot to which the all-in players contributed is the main pot. A side pot is created from any additional money bet by the remaining players. There can be many side pots if there is more than one all-in player. An all-in player is only eligible to win a pot to which he has contributed.

SLOW PLAY: When, in an attempt to have other players stick around and possibly call your bets, you play your hand less aggressively than necessary. For example, if you flop a full house, it is unlikely anyone is going to beat your hand. Slow-playing the hand may allow the other players to make their hands and therefore continue to call your bets.
STRADDLE: An optional pre-deal bet, typically made by the player to the left of the big blind. The straddle amount is twice the big blind (same as a legal raise). The straddler earns the “option” from the big blind. He may re-raise when the action comes around to him. A straddle is a cash game convention and is not usually permitted in a tournament.
STRING BET: Placing a bet on the table in a staggered motion or multiple motions. String bets are not allowed, and the dealer will remove the added amount of the bet if he determines a bet to be a string bet.

TIME: Requesting more time to think. A player will call for time to avoid the dealer killing the hand due to inactivity.
TOP PAIR: A pair with the highest card on the board. For example, if you have an ace and 7 in the hole, and it’s a 3-4-7 flop, you’ve got a “top pair” with an ace kicker. If you had a pair greater than sevens in your pocket, you’d have an over-pair.
TOURNAMENT: A poker event involving one or more tables of players who each begin with a fixed amount of tournament chips. They play until they have either lost that amount, are the last player remaining holding all the chips, or the remaining players enter into an agreement to end the game.
