word type: poker slang

  1. A raise in stud games that elevates the betting amount from the price of the "bring in" to the size of the lower betting limit in the game.


Stud games are usually structured with an ante and a bring in, forced bets that are priced lower than the actual limits being played. The "completion bet" is equal to the lower betting limit that is being played.

For instance, a game of $10/20 stud will have a $3 ante and a $3 bring in. The player who raises the betting action to $10 on third street is completing the bet.
