"S" Terms

Splash the Pot

  1. Verb

    To put chips or money directly into the pot rather than on the edge of the pot in front of oneself, especially by throwing the chips or money such that it scatters around.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This is considered bad etiquette because the chips will often roll out of the pot and cause extra work for the dealer and because it makes it difficult to confirm that the amount contributed was counted correctly.

    EXAMPLE: "Please don't splash the pot."

    APPLIES TO: Land-based Venues
