Collection

  1. Noun

    Collection drop; compensation paid to the casino or cardroom for hosting a game; the rake, time collection, dead collection blind, or any other fee charged for organizing a game.

    EXAMPLE: "My playing style changes slightly depending on the type of collection. I tend to steal more pots when there isn't a rake, but when the money is taken directly from the winner the risk in stealing doesn't get you as much."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
