In the money

Being 'in the money' in poker is being guaranteed a monetary payout in a tournament. This occurs when there are equal or less active players then there are cash places.

e.g "All of the top 80 players in this tournament get money. 56 players are still in and Timmy's one of them. He's in the money!"
