Poker Dictionary – Dark Bet

Poker players flock to online sites every day, and poker is gaining solid ground in India. People belonging to this industry use a particular set of terms to describe steps in the game and more. In the latest Poker Dictionary article, we will shed light on the term called Dark Bet. In Poker, ‘Dark Bet’ refers to a player who bet without even taking a glance at their hand. Such ‘Dark Bets’ take place during various situations. 

For example, when a player announces a bet even before the cards we are dealt. In Hold ’em, when a player raises and other players call, even before the flop opens, the player says, ‘I bet $50 in the dark.’ This means, the flop betting begins with the 50$ bet.

Bet In The Dark

Check in the dark means to check without even looking at your cards. The player must place the chips for the bet on the table, in order for the bet to be valid. Once a player has bet in the dark, they cannot reverse their bet even after the cards have been dealt.
