Gypsy in ( poker )
In the smaller double-limit games, usually up to 15-30, a pot can be opened for the minimum bet.
For example, in the 2-4 game, the dealer puts a dollar chip in the pot before the cards have been dealt,
the player to the left of the dealer also puts in a dollar chip before the cards have been dealt, and the player
two positions to the left of the dealer puts in two dollar chips. After the cards have been dealt, the players look
at their cards. Starting three positions to the left of the dealer, each player makes a decision in turn whether to
play the pot. If a player does not want to play, the player discards his or her cards, and has no further interest in this pot.
The first player to put money into the pot after having seen his or her cards is said to open the pot, or, simply, to open.
That player has two choices on the opening bet. He or she can open for $2, that is, the size of the big blind.
Or he or she can open for $4, which is called coming in for a raise. Opening for the minimum permitted is called gypsying in.
