Time Out

  1. Verb

    In a game with a limited amount of time to act, to run out of time.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Rules vary for what action is taken when a player times out. In most cases, the player is folded. However, if it was possible to check, some casinos or cardrooms may consider a player who times out to have checked rather than folded.

    EXAMPLE: "I was multi-tabling and timed out with one of my hands. It was just as well that I did, since I probably would have folded the hand anyway."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    RELATED TERMS: All-in Disconnect Protection, Time
