Last Updated: January 16, 2024


An overcall in poker is when you’re calling a bet after other players have done the same. This term can apply to any player calling after the first player has called. 

Overcall Poker Example:

After the BTN player open raises, and the SB calls, if you call at the BB position, you will be overcalling. Any player following you will also be overcalling.
