Check v. Not betting, aka pass. Possible only if no one has bet before you. If someone has bet out, you must either call, raise, or fold. Note that before the flop, checking is not an option, because the blinds constitute an initial bet.|
Check call v. Declining to bet, but calling if someone else does.
Check fold v. A check, with the intention of folding if anyone bets.
Check raise v., n. First checking, then raising anyone who bets after you. A powerful show of strength. The risk is that the whole table may check.
Check to the raiser vp. If a player shows strength by raising, the tendency next betting round is for players acting before him to check, because they do not want to get reraised.
Checks n. Less common term for chips.
