A fish is commonly known as a player who constantly make questionable calls during poker games and usually lose money as a result. They usually have little or no experience in poker. They can often draw the ire of other poker players at the table due to their initial ability to be read. However, in most cases, poker players eventually view a fish as being 'easy money' due to their low skill becoming evident and predicable to the rest of the table.
