word type: acronym

  1. An acronym for "Thank You Very Much" used inside chat boxes of online poker games.


The acronym "tyvm" has been around as long as people have been chatting online. However, it has become popular for poker players to type in this acronym as a way of taunting an opponent after winning a big pot against them.


Playing against Isildur1, Tom "durrrr" Dwan raises his pocket Aces pre-flop. In response, Isildur1 shoves all-in which Dwan repsonds to with a snapcall. Isildur1 turns over KT offsuit and bricks off the board against Dwan's AA. Once the hand is over, Dwan types into the chat box, "TYVM" in mocking fashion.
