Investment

  1. Noun

    The amount of money or chips that a player has contributed or expects to contribute to the pot in a particular hand.

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

  2. Noun

    The total amount spent on buy-in and add ons for a tournament.

    EXAMPLE: "I put in an $11 investment for a small online sit and go tournament, but ended up not placing in the money."
