Highroller

  • A player that has the bankroll, i.e. is "high rolled", to be able to afford the highest tournament buy-ins or cash game stakes available.
    The term is applied to players and events in order to achieve a prestigious touch. Being a "high roller" is the goal of everyone who wants to make it in poker.

    It resonates with complete financial freedom and independence and a decadent lifestyle involving luxury and high level accomodation.

    High roller has become a widely used brand that stands for everything that involves having deep pockets of cash in poker. You could say it is the equivalent of a "baller" in other aspects of financial status in life.

    Example

    "The highroller tournament event this year was really big. There was one million up top to win for getting first place!"

    "He got one of the high roller suites of the hotel, must be nice!"
