Split Pot

  1. Noun

    A pot that is divided among multiple players.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This can be due to a tie or due to different players winning the high and low portions in a high-low split game. It is possible to have multiple split pots in the same game. Example: The game being played is a high-low game. The pot contains $60. Player A has a 9-high straight. Player B has a 9-high straight. Player C has A-2-3-4-6. Player C has the low hand, and Players A and B tie with the highest hands. The pot is split into a $30 high pot and a $30 low pot because there was not a scoop by a single player. Then the high pot is split again between Players A and B. Player A wins $15, Player B wins $15, and Player C wins $30.

    EXAMPLE: "We were playing Hi-Low and the high hands tied. There was a split pot for the game and a split pot for the high hand."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues
