Poker Dictionary – Action


Even though poker is played sitting down or in front of a screen, it continues to be an enjoyable game for many. Aptly called a mind sport, poker players use their knowledge of the game and their skills to perform well in the game. While there may not be a lot of physical activity, there is still a lot of action involved in the game. In this article, we’ll be diving into the meaning of the word ‘action’ in poker.

What does ‘Action’ mean in poker?

The term ‘action’ in poker has a wide range of meanings. For instance, action can be used to refer to when it’s a player’s turn to act. Here the ‘action’ could mean calling, raising, betting, or folding. These are all kinds of actions that players can perform when playing the game. For example, Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth are playing a heads up No-Limit Hold’em game. Negreanu is the first one to act and places a bet, after which the ‘action’ then falls on Hellmuth. This means that Hellmuth will have to make a decision to either, call, raise, or fold in order for the game to progress further.

Another use of the word ‘action’ in poker can be when there are a lot of interesting hands being played in a certain game. For example, if players continue to bet or raise multiple times in a single hand, then it can be said there is ‘action’ on the table. The term can also be used for activities that happen outside the game like making prop bets or side bets.

So, while poker may not be a physical game, it is still mentally challenging, and a game that still has a lot of action in it.
