Check Raise

  • A Check Raise is a play in which a player checks, and then raises on the same street when facing a bet.
    Check raise is often abbreviated as x/r, using standard poker shorthand for a check followed by a raise.

    Check raising is a powerful tool in any player’s arsenal. Check raising with strong hands can often lead to winning huge pots,
    and check raising bluffs can make opponents think twice before calling with any hand that isn’t the nuts.

    Example: I rivered my flush, so I decided to check raise for maximum value.
