  • LIVE BLIND - The last and largest blind bet may or may not be LIVE. If LIVE, the blind bettor has the option of "raising" his own blind in the event the bet is called around to him. This is normal, and is sometimes referred to as "blinds are live".
  • BIG BLIND - A blind bet, usually a raise of an earlier blind which would be called the SMALL BLIND. In limit poker, the BIG BLIND is usually the size of the minimum bet on the first round of betting.
  • STACKED [DECK] - A deck that has been arranged to give one player a huge advantage. Also: RIGGED.
  • DEAD MAN'S HAND - Generically: two pair, aces and eights. Specifically: the black aces, black eights and nine of diamonds. The hand Wild Bill Hickok was holding when he was shot to death.
  • FAMILY POT - A pot where all of the players at the table are participating, even after each has had an opportunity to act.
  • SHARK - A good/crafty player often posing as a fish early in the game.
