  • FACE CARD - A jack, queen or king (a card with a face on it, not joker).
  • BAD-BEAT JACKPOT - In some cardrooms, a prize that is shared by the players in a game, when a very good hand (usually Aces full, or better) is beaten by a higher hand. Jackpots are usually financed by taking a drop ($1 is a common amount) from every pot. A typical division of the jackpot will give the losing hand 50 %, the winning hand 25 %, and the other players at the table share the remaining 25 % of the Jackpot.
  • SHORT-STACKED - Playing with a only a small amount of money, thus limiting one's risk and reward.
  • FREEROLL - [1] A poker tournament that does not charge a buy-in fee; players must earn buy-in credits through previous play at the same establishment. [2] Having a lock on part of a pot (sure to win a greater fraction of the pot than one is betting) and playing to win more or all of it.
  • ON THE COME - A situation where the player does not have a complete hand but hopes to make one if the right cards come up.
  • POCKET PAIR - Generic Hold'em term for 2 hole cards of the same rank.
