Pot Committed

Pot committed in poker is when you reach a point when you shouldn’t fold against a bet or raise. This happens when you invest many chips into the game so that the pot is significantly larger than your remaining stack.

Pot Committed Poker Example:

You and your opponent started the game with $1,000 each and have put $800 into the pot up until the river card. After the river card is revealed, your opponent moves all in with their last $200. At this point, you’re pot committed, as you need to call $200 to win $1,800.
