To grind is to play consistently for profit on a given limit without taking much risk. A grinder or rounder is a player who plays on a limit beneath his abilities to make part or all of his income, even though he could play on a higher limit at greater risk.

The other meaning of grinding is to work up one's bankroll on a lower limit after encountering financial difficulties on a higher one. We say, a player grinds through the limits.
