  • OPEN - Make the first bet in a hand, especially in draw poker.
  • 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.
  • PAY OFF - Calling a bet with little expectation of winning, unless the opponent is bluffing.
  • STRAIGHT FLUSH - A hand consisting of 5 cards in sequence and the same suit.
  • 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.
  • RUNNER-RUNNER - A hand made using both of the last two cards dealt.
