The chop poker term refers to the action of returning the blinds to the players who have placed them and moving on to the next round if no other players.
Additionally, it’s also used as a verb explaining the action of “chopping the pot.” This is when the players divide the poker chips in the pot because they have the same winning hand.
For example, let’s say you make it to the showdown with just one other player left in the game. The community board reads five random cards that don’t make any hand.
As you and the opponent flip the cards, both of you unveil pocket aces. Because this is the strongest hand on both sides, the only fair outcome is to equally chop the pot.
