word type: poker slang
- The aura a player gives off at the poker table.
Table image is the dominant concept here, but "presence" is its kissing cousin. Poker Terms tries to convey the distinction by calling "table image" a necessary component of every poker player's existence whereas "table presence" is a more intangible version of the same thing and something that not all poker players naturally possess.
Who Gots the Presence?
Players known for having a high degree of "table presence" include:
- David 'The Dragon' Pham
- Phil Ivey
- Michael 'The Grinder' Mizrachi
- J.C. Tran
- Steve Sung
