Potstuck

  1. Adjective

    Who is pot committed; who has already contributed such a high percentage of one's chip stack to the pot so as to make folding no longer a reasonable choice even if holding a hand that is likely to be beaten on the showdown.

    EXAMPLE: "If I make a hand that I think will hold up on the showdown early in the round, I make sure to know how much my opponents have in their stacks. Rather than make a raise that would put them all-in immediately, I will often make a slightly smaller raise that will just get them potstuck. I find some opponents are more likely to call the initial raise that way because it is a smaller raise, although, it doesn't really end up being smaller since I just raise them the rest of their stack on the next round of betting. With most of their chips already in the pot, almost nobody folds to the second raise."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    USAGE: Describes a player.
