Hand For Hand

word type: poker slang

  1. When there is a money bubble and tournaments with multiple tables will play one hand and stop until all others are done with a hand before starting a new one simultaneously with other tables.


A tournament will go into "Hand For Hand" mode when they get down to the last few spots before being in the money or before the final table. This allows players to play more cautiously and allow tournament directors to properly determine what place people finish in when they bust out.
