Pot Committed

  1. Adjective

    Who has already contributed such a high percentage of one's chip stack to the pot so as to make folding no longer a reasonable choice even if holding a hand that is likely to be beaten on the showdown.

    EXAMPLE: "I used to bluff too often in situations where there was really no chance my opponent would fold. Now I've learned to take my opponent's stack size into account so I don't bluff against someone who is pot committed."

    USAGE: Describes a player.

    SYNONYMS: Potstuck
