Bottom Pair

Bottom pair is the term used in formats that use community cards, such as Texas Hold'em or Omaha. The bottom pair is made up of the lowest board card and one of the player's cards. More generally speaking, a bottom pair can also refer to a pair which uses one of the smaller community cards to make a pair.

Example (Texas Hold'em):

Player Board

The player has a pair of threes, and three is the lowest board card, so he has a bottom pair.
