A glossery of poker terms can be found here….

However we use our own version of shorthand a lot which can be very confusing not to mention that some of use use made up terms too.

So here are some terms / short hand with my interpretation of them... Please add to the list.

4 handed ...6 handed.. ect Not someone with extra hands but the number of people being dealt a hand at the table, SO on a full ring table where every seat is filled and everyone is playing we said it is 9 handed but if 1 player sits out (not playing) it is 8 handed.

6-max/ 4-max the maximum number of players who can play on one poker table. so a NLHE(no limit hold'em)6-max MTT (multi table tournament) is a Tournament where the maximum number of people who can be at the same poker table is 6.

insta - shove To go all in. However the insta (instant) part implies that you would go all in every time, no having to think about it.

shove To bet all of your chips into the pot.
