Definition of All In


What does the term "All In" mean in the world of poker? What is the definition of the term "all in"?

In poker, the term "all in" refers to when you have committed the remainder of your chips to the middle of the table. This means that if you end up losing the hand, you will be left with no chips.

For instance - let's say that you are playing in a No Limit Hold'em tournament online. Heading into the hand, you are down to just 3 BBs (Big Blinds). The blinds are coming around soon and you look down at A-K in early position.

You decide to push all-in, which means that you have committed the rest of your chips. If you end up losing the hand, you will be out of the tournament.

You can also be "all in" while playing limit games as well - if a bet leaves you with no chips left, you will be "all in", even if you aren't playing in a No Limit game.

"I'm all in" is one of the most dramatic statements that can be made in the world of poker, as it means that you are prepared to exit the tournament if you lose the hand. It is this "All or nothing" attitude that makes poker such an exciting game.
