  3. All-in


A poker player goes 'All-In' when they bet all of their chips during the hand. Their chips are "all in" the pot, hence the term.

e.g "I only had a few chips left when I got pocket Aces, so I went All-In hoping to double up."
"She made a huge bet on the river when I had the nuts, so I re-raised All-In, she called and I won a few hundred bucks."
