stands for poker tracker big bet.
Big Bet is a term derived from Limit holdem
, where there are two bet sizes - the big blind
and on the flop
, and 2xthe big blind
on the turn
. Hence a big bet is 2x the big blind
This term is often used by people when describing win-rates, as an early poker database programme (poker tracker) measured winrates in big bets/100 hands.
People now often use the abbreviation ptBB
/100 to describe winrates - as in poker tracker big bets/100 hands.
Example: Wow, I'm crushing 25nl. I'm running 8ptBB/100 over 40k hands. Time to move up.
