Definition

Being in a situation when the pot is big enough in relation to your remaining stack that you have to call regardless of the action. For example blinds 100/200 – if preflop the pot is 1,200, you have 1,000 behind and you are betting 500 you are pot commited, since if someone comes over the top you will have to call 500 into 2,700 pot and if you fold will only have 2.5 BB

Example

He tried to bluff me but did not realize I was pot commited
