Even if you know how to play poker, navigating the poker world may be difficult. Even if you’ve studied a ton of material on poker strategy, there will always be that one scary moment when you don’t fully grasp the meaning of a key term.

Poker’s esoteric and often bewildering lexicon is a big part of what makes it such a thrilling game, and PokerNews is here to help you make sense of seven of hem to you.

Rake

The rake is a small percentage of the chips in the pot that is often collected by the house at the end of a cash game. The rake at Encore Boston Harbor was 10% of the rake or $10, whichever was greater, once the casino reopened in February 2022. For every $10 pot, the casino would get 10% of the money. When the pot is $120, for instance, the most the casino could take would be $10. They would take $8.50 if the pot was $85 total.

Rainbow

In both No-Limit Hold’em and Omaha, a flop with three distinct suits is referred to as a rainbow, or more often a rainbow board. That eliminates the possibility of completing a flush on the turn.

Runner-Runner

As the old adage goes, “there’s nothing funnier than runner-runner.” This idiom refers to a backdoor draw that is completed by utilising both the turn and the river. “He flipped a set and defeated my trips with a runner-runner flush.”

Confidential Documents, Rolled Up
In seven-card stud, this is a very good position to be in on fourth street. To be “rolled up” indicates that your initial three cards form a straight, flush, or full house.

Rounders

If you answered “yes,” then the question would be: “Did you have it?”

I’m sorry, John, but I just can’t place that.

Rounders (1998), starring Matt Damon and Edward Norton as itinerant professional poker players, is often regarded as the best film ever made on the game.

Go Well
The essence of running good is simple: winning hands and playing well. Whether you get them by chance or hard work is irrelevant; what counts are the chips you’re dealt.
