Family Pot

  1. Noun

    A pot in which many players have a stake; the money at stake in a hand in which few players have folded; community pot.

    EXAMPLE: "I had A-K offsuit in the pocket, and thought I had a good chance of winning when I paired my king on the flop. There were a lot of loose players at the table and it ended up being a family pot. Even though I had a good hand to start with and played aggressively, with that many players staying in the pot I wasn't surprised when I got outdrawn."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
