The pot is the prize pool consisting of all the bets made in a hand. If the pot is divided between two or more players, e.g. in Hi/Lo variants in which the best and worst hands win, or because two or more players have the same hand, this is called a split pot.

There can also be more than one pot in the hand, i.e. when one or more players go all-in. All bets made above the all-in amount are put into a new pot, the side pot, so that only the players who have the necessary money can compete for it. The first pot is called the main pot.
