word type: noun
- An option to play higher stakes than the game being played.
- Colloquial way of saying "overcards."
How it Works
Usually, overs are played in poker clubs or home games in which two or more players in a game want to play for higher stakes than those being offered.
For instance, the game might be $30/60 limit hold 'em, and two players in the game might want to play $40/80. Those two players will usually receive an "overs" token and, anytime they are the only players remaining in the pot, the stakes will switch to $40/80.
