Even though poker is a very simple game to play, it is fair to say that it has a number of nuances which make it very unique. In fact, you would be forgiven for thinking that poker had a language all of its own, and if you do not know too much about poker, you could be left feeling a bit bewildered by a lot of the chat that goes on around the poker table. Over time, you will learn and pick up everything you need to know, but if you want to give yourself a helping hand, here are some of the terms that may be of use if you are looking to boost your poker knowledge.

You will commonly hear players talking about going "all-in", and this means putting all of your chips into the pot. A player who has gone all-in is not able to be forced out of the pot, but they are only able to win the amount of the pot that they are in for. For any additional bets arising from this point on, a side-pot is created.

If you are sitting around the poker table and hear someone moaning about a bad beat, be thankful it wasn't you. This is a term cited by a player when they looked a certainty to win a hand with the cards they held, but for some reason they ended up losing. This is often the result of another player managing to catch cards, or get very lucky, resulting in a surprising defeat for the player.

If you are playing Texas holdem and you get a big slick, you are doing rather well. Big slick is a title that is given when holding an ace and a king with your initial two cards. Some players believe that the starting position when playing poker isn't that important, especially when you have a great starting hand like ace king. Although a great starting hand is very important, there is no doubt that having a good starting position with a great set of cards is an even better position to be in.

If a player decides to check, it is not because they want verification about something, it is down to the fact that they are declining to bet when it is their turn to do so. In poker, some of the most successful players are the ones that realize you don't have to bet every time. In fact, minimizing the number of bets you make can help you to be a winner in the long run, so there is no shame in checking when playing poker. It can often help keep you in the game for longer, which is a lot to do with winning.

You don't want to be a resident of Tapped City, or be declaring that you are all tapped out. If this is your situation, it is indicating that you are broke, which is an extremely bad position to be in when you are playing poker. These are just some of the terms that will crop up regularly during poker games.
