Fold Equity

This is when a player has enough chips to pressure someone with less chips to fold. If a player has a small amount of chips he is usually forced to showdown his hands because the players with more chips have less to lose.

EXAMPLE “I’m not going to continue to bluff on the river because I don’t think I have much fold equity.”
