Posting Out of Turn

word type: verb

  1. When a player in a poker game pays the big blind early or after missing his or her turn in order to be dealt immediately.


Posting Out of Turn is considered by many to be a leak in a poker player's game. Paying the big blind even in late position is effectively limping in without seeing your cards. Players in late position in good games will exploit this to no end. Therefore many regulars consider a player to be weak when they see another post of out turn.
