Gravy ( poker )
1) Unexpected profit on a hand. For example, in a no-limit lowball game one player has only $20 and is all in.
You have created a side pot of $200 by raising another player. You and the other player both have money left.
The all-in player and the other player each draw one card. You are snowing and stand pat on a queen-jack.
After the draw, the player with remaining chips checks, you bet $200, and he folds.
You know that the side pot is all yours, already a profit of $80, but you think that the $60 main pot probably
will belong to the all-in player, however, on the showdown he cannot beat your hand, because he was drawing to a
wheel and paired one of the small cards. That $60 is gravy.
2) The amount by which a player is ahead, usually implying that he is in a lot and was stuck until fairly recently.
"Boy, you're winning a lot! Look at all those chips--must be over a grand."
"Uh huh. I'm in a thousand. There's $1040 here, so $40 is gravy."
