Last Updated: January 28, 2024


When a player gets felted in poker, it means they lost their entire stack to an opponent who left them with nothing in front of them except the felt. The term was coined and popularized by the famous poker player Phil Laak.

Felted Poker Example:

The hero makes a strong flush hand and decides to go all in. Unfortunately, the villain calls the bet to reveal a full house, leaving the hero felted and out of the game.
