Cold Call

  1. Noun

    A situation in which the choice to call follows a bet and a raise, raise and a reraise, or other series of increases to the amount required to stay in the pot.

    EXAMPLE: "The two players before me raised, so now I have a cold call."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

  2. Noun

    A wager made that matches the sum of multiple bets rather than the sum of a single bet, and that does not reraise.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Example: There are four players in a game, Player A, Player B, Player C, and Player D. Player A opens the betting for a round with $10, Player B calls the $10 bet, and Player C raises to $20. If Player D calls, it would be referred to as a cold call because it involves calling both the initial $10 bet and the raise.

    EXAMPLE: "There was a lot of aggressive play last hand. All five players stayed in the pot. There was a raise, a call, then two reraise and a cold call. Nobody folded."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
