Big Bet Poker

word type: noun

  1. The term denotes games where bets can be made equal to or greater than the size of the pot (pot-limit or no-limit), as opposed to incremental, limit bets.

What it Isn't

Poker noobs sometimes think that "big bet poker" refers to the stakes that are being played. In fact, a $.25/.50 no-limit game is a "big bet" game, but a $2k/4k HORSE game is not.
