Dig

  1. Noun

    A game in which players may add money or chips to the table while a particular hand is ongoing; as opposed to a game following a table stakes rule.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Because of the constant possibility of adding more money to the table, there is no possibility of going all-in during a dig game. Dig games are forbidden in many gaming jurisdictions. This is done both to prevent players from gaining the strategic advantage of having opponent's not know the size of one's stack and also to assist players in managing their bankroll to avoid problem gambling.

    EXAMPLE: "Since there is no such thing as going all-in during a dig game, it would be really easy to steal the pot."

  2. Verb

    To add money or chips to the table while a particular hand is ongoing.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Note that the chips are being added to the table, not to the pot, and digging does not in itself entail placing a wager. Most cardrooms apply a table stakes rule such that digging is forbidden. This is done both to prevent players from gaining the strategic advantage of having opponent's not know the size of one's stack and also to assist players in managing their bankroll to avoid problem gambling.

    EXAMPLE: "We decided not to play table stakes. When my opponent raised me over the top, I decided to dig in order to reraise."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
