Deal me in

Deal me in

A request made in live poker games that a player be dealt cards for the next hand. This allows a player a slightly longer time to use the bathroom, purchase a soda, or answer a phone call, because he or she does not have to get back to the table when the next hand is dealt. However, if the player is not back by the time his or her turn comes around, the hand will be folded and the player will be dealt out.

Some casinos require that a player be dealt in to be eligible for a table share of a bad beat jackpot, so players ask to be dealt in for this reason as well.

Example: "Because I had to go get a drink of water, I asked the dealer to deal me in."
