Rock

  1. Noun

    A player who plays few hands and typically folds or bets the minimum amount required to stay in the pot rather than betting, raising, or reraising; a player who is both tight and passive; a conservative player; as opposed to a maniac.

    EXAMPLE: "Although they tend to win when they make it to the showdown, rocks may lose a lot of money in the long run because they do not take full advantage of a strong hand."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
