Soft Play

Soft playing is a form of collusion in an attempt to gain an advantage at the poker table. In short, it is when a player takes less aggressive lines when playing against players they like.

For example, the player might check instead of betting or call instead of raising when they have a strong hand but don’t want to play back against their friend.
