What is a Shove in Poker?

1 minute

Last Updated: December 17, 2023


A shove is an all-in move in poker when you put all of your remaining chips into the pot. It’s mainly used in the context of the aggressor making this action. 

Poker Shove Example:

If your opponent raises from the BTN and you decide to move all in from the Big Blind with your remaining stack, you “shove” all of your chips. Shoving can be a very powerful move for winning big pots with strong hands and help you re-steal money from players who are raising too often.
