Poker Term of the Week

This week’s far-out term is orbit. In poker, an orbit is a complete round of dealing. You can look at it as the number of hands based on the number of players at the table or as the period in which each player at the table has served as the dealer for that round. Thus, each time the button passes you, this is a complete orbit.

Oftentimes, players who break tournament rules are required to sit out for an orbit as a penalty.
