  3. Verb

    To split the pot four ways or split it in such a way that at least one player receives one-fourth of the pot.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The term may be applied in any game, but is most often applied in high-low split games due to the high improbability of a four-way split in other variations. Example: In a high-low split game, Player A wins the high pot and Players B and C split the low pot. Even though Player A wins half the pot, it is considered quartered because both Players B and C won one-fourth.

    EXAMPLE: "I had a straight and thought the pot would be split two ways, with me winning the high pot. It turns out one of my opponents had the same straight and the pot was quartered."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
