Poker terminology:

  • SHORT-STACKED - Playing with a only a small amount of money, thus limiting one's risk and reward.
  • FORCED BET - In some stud games a player may be required to make a bet to start the action on the first card. This is similar conceptually to blinds and antes, but in this case is dependent on the cards shown rather than player position. Usually the weakest hand is forced to bet.
  • MIDDLE POSITION - Betting positions approximately halfway around the table from the first player to act.
  • QUARTER - [1] Twenty-five dollars, often symbolized by a green casino chip. [2] To divide half a pot between two tying hands. In split pot games, a player who "ties" another player for their half of the pot is said to be "quartered". One might say "I didn't bet my A-2 because I figured I'd get quartered".
  • KICKER TROUBLE - Not having as high a kicker as an opponent.
  • ACTION - Money that is being bet. "NO ACTION" means a hand or game has few bettors and fewer raisers. "Gimme some action" is ostensibly a plea for calls and raises.
