In poker, the term “air” refers to a hand with no value, like is the case with non-paired hands. The word is used to describe situations when you raise or call a bet with no hand to bluff or setup a bluff on a later street.

EXAMPLE “My opponent bet $1 into a $5 pot on the river I am pretty much committed to call that small of a bet with everything but total air.”

EXAMPLE β€œHe was betting with air the whole time.”
