|Assunto:||To ante up|
"To ante up" means to bet money before you start playing. In essence, I am paying money to play or betting money to show that I am serious. This term is used almost exclusively with poker.
The dealer says, "Ante up." (Let's say the "ante" is $5.00.)
I put $5.00 on the table to show that I am playing.
NOW the dealer gives cards to all the players and the game begins. As the game continues I can discard (reject, replace) cards once. I will have more than one chance to bet. If I have the best (winning) hand, then I get all the money on the table: the money the players anted as well as the money they bet.
Please don't tell my mother I told you about this. She made me promise never to play cards.
