Calling station

A calling station is a player who usually only calls bets. They rarely, if ever, raise, re-raise or bet themselves. They are largely viewed as being on the same level as fishes/donkeys.

e.g "I should win a bit of money of this calling station, he doesn't seem to know what he's doing."
