word type: verb

  1. The act of holding a mouse cursor over an object, be it a HUD or online poker table.


The term hover refers to the act of a player holding their mouse cursor over something. If you play at certain sites, such as Full Tilt Poker you can see your folded hands if you already mucked them. On other sites your notes will pop up, and if you have a program like Holdem Manager you can hover over your HUD to get a pop-up window with more information on your opponent.
