Poker Dictionary – Act


In poker, for the game to progress, players need to perform actions like calling, raising, betting, or folding. This means players need to ‘act’ during a poker hand. Let’s learn a little bit more about this poker term.

What does the word ‘act’ mean in poker?

When it’s time for a player to decide on his/her action in a poker hand, that’s when a player needs to ‘act.’ This poker term is a commonly used term in poker. If someone is ‘next to act’ then it means it’s their turn to make a move. For example, when a player raises, the next player will have to ‘act’ by folding, calling, or re-raising.

If someone is ‘last to act’ means that player will be the last one to make a decision on the table. Being the ‘last to act’ in a poker hand can prove to be advantageous. This player will be able to see how everyone else has acted, before making any moves.

The word ‘act’ can also be used when referring to a performance or ‘tell’ that is intended to give false information about a hand. This is used by poker players to mislead their opponents.
