Call

In poker you have options of when you want to put more money into the pot and when you want to fold and withdraw yourself from the hand.

Someone must bet for you to be able to call. You match the amount of the bets or raises by calling that amount and you must withdraw yourself from contention if you do not want to match the amount of money or chips that is required to stay in the pot.

EXAMPLE “I called his bet with a marginal hand on the river because I thought he was bluffing.”
