Poker Slang - The F WordIf you are new to poker, or do not know anything about poker, but would very much like to learn, you may start with learning a few poker terms. Here are some the most use terms in poker which begin with the letter F:
Family pot - the pot in which almost all the players at the poker table joined in the first round of betting.
Fifth street - in poker, this is also known as the river. In Texas Hold'em poker, this is fifth of the community cards, which is drawn after the turn, or the fourth community card.
Final table - in a poker tournament, this is the final round in which players fight it out against others who also have won in other poker tables.
Fish - a type of poker player who places bet without much thinking. He's the most careless poker player at the table, and is most likely to lose.
Flash - there are two different meanings of the word flash in poker. One of these meanings is that it is an act of the dealer to let the bottom card of the deck be seen. The other meaning is that it is done when a poker player show one or two of his hole cards to other players after the round, usually to show that he is bluffing, which is a mockery to other players, because they fell for it.
Floorman, or floorperson - this is a position in a casino. This person's job is to manage poker tables and seats, to settle fights or troubles at the poker table, and to designate dealers to their tables.
Flush - a type of poker hand that is formed by five cards of the same suit. A flush beats the straight, the three-of-a-kind, the two pairs, the pair and the high card.
Forward motion - is a regulation in poker tournaments or casinos in which a player who has started to place his chips forward to the pot, he could no longer retract and change his mind. He could no longer check or fold. He has to bet, either he should call or raise. This poker regulation is comparable to chess's touch-move.
Full boat - in poker, a full boat is another term for a full house. A full boat is composed of three cards of the same type, like three 5's, and a pair, like, two Jacks.
Fox hunt - this means to reveal what would have been the next card drawn. This is done only after a winner of the round has been declared. Some casinos allow this, but others do not, to avoid bitter feelings from poker players who would have won.
