Check call

Check call

A strategic decision to remain in the hand while playing passively, i.e., to check and not bet, and then call the villain's bet if one is made. Usually done when the player believes the villain is likely to bluff or overbet an inferior hand, when the player is on a draw and has odds to call, or when the player is slowplaying a monster.

Example: "I wasn't sure my tens were good, so I check-called the turn."
