Poker terms you must know before start playing (pt. 2)

Poker is a really huge game and there are many new terms you can learn every day. This terminology is something which might be useful for you while playing because it could give you some valuable information in the process of the game. In this article, part of our casino games rules and strategies, we will present you some of the most important terms you must know.

 

Cranberry

 

Cranberry is a poker player who calls against the pot-odds.

 

Gutshot Straight

 

Gutshot Straight is when we have a straight filled “inside”. Imagine that you have 9s-8s, then the flop comes 7c-5h-2d and the turn is the 6c – well, congratulations – you made the gutshot straight.

 

B&M

 

B&M literally stands for “brick and mortar” – this is a cardroom which has a real physical location. This is a poker being played live, not online. Old school.

 

No Limit

 

No Limit is a situation when players have the opportunity to bet as much as they actually like on any round.

 

Dead Card

 

We have a “dead card” when we have a card which is not legally playable.

 

Bluff Catcher

 

How about catching some bluffing? A bluff catcher is when we have a hand which can be won only if you call the player who was bluffing.

 

Ducks

 

That’s pretty simple. We have ducks when we just have a pair of twos.

 

ABC Poker

 

This is when we are playing poker which is “by the book”. In other words – this the style of playing when it’s really straightforward and excludes any fancy play. If you’re playing an ABC poker though, you risk to be easily read as a predictable player by the other.

 

These are some of the poker terms you must know in order to improve your knowledge. In our casino games rules and strategies guides we will offer you many more, so stay tuned.
