Poker Term of the Week

This week’s term is hand-for-hand. In poker, hand-for-hand play is used in multi-table tournaments just prior to the bubble bursting when payouts begin or, also, if the tournament is in the money and a pay jump occurs.

In hand-for-hand play, each remaining table plays a single hand before the next one is dealt. This is to ensure that all tables play the same number of hands prior to the next elimination and is an effective procedure for preventing players from stalling to slow their table, thus hoping an elimination occurs at another table.
