Negative Freeroll

word type: poker slang

  1. When two players go all in with one player only having the ability to chop or lose in the hand.


There are times when players go all in with two cards of the same rank. However, one player will have a flush draw. The player who cannot improve is on a Negative Freeroll because they cannot win the hand.


An example of a negative freeroll would include Player A who has JT of diamonds who goes all in against Player B who also has JT but not suited. The flop was J42 with two diamonds. Since both players are all in, we know that Player A can improve to a flush. Player B can only hope to chop, thus, is on a negative freeroll.
