Poker Dictionary – Agent


If you’ve come across the word ‘agent’ in poker and are not sure what it refers to then this article is for you. Poker has a lot of interesting terms, and the word ‘agent’ is one of them. In a general sense, a person who acts on behalf of another person or group can be referred to as an agent. Another meaning in English is a person or thing that takes an active role or produces a specific effect. We’ll be taking a look at these two definitions of the word and how they relate to poker.

What does ‘agent’ mean in poker?

In poker, the term ‘agent’ can mean two different things. In the first instance, the word is used to refer to a person who helps poker players manage all aspects of their business in terms of getting the best deals and offers. They also look at contracts and legal deals for professional poker players. This person is called a poker agent.

The second use of the term has some negative associations with the word, where an ‘agent’ is used to refer to a person taking part in a cheating scheme. The agent in this case is someone who partners with players, casino dealers, or employees in an effort to cheat in the game. One example of this is when an agent draws a player into playing a rigged game.

However, the term’s negative connotation is rarely referred to in the present-day context. It is more likely that the term is used in association with the first definition of an agent. We hope you were able to understand what the term ‘agent’ means in poker.
