Poker Glossary

The bubble refers to the placings in a tournament that are close to winning prize money but do not receive any money. For example, if 100 people enter a tournament and the tournament pays out money to the top 15 players, someone busting out around 16th or so would be said to have busted out on the bubble. When the tournament is at the stage near the bubble, players tend to tighten up a lot because they do not want to bust out and not receive any money. Aggressive players often take advantage of this situation and steal a lot of pots.
