How does a sidepot work in online poker?

Date Published: 11th September 2019
Do you know what a side pot is? Have any idea how this works in online poker? Side pots are not a common occurrence, but they are something you will face during your online poker sessions. These occur when you or another player is all-in. Here’s how it works.

What it Means To Be “All In”
A player that is "All In" means that this player has bet the last of their chips into the pot. Once they are "All In", they cannot perform any other action as they don't have any chips left. If you are All In, you better hope you have the winning hand.

When The Side Pot Comes In
The player that is “All In” is basically out of turns, but when there is more than one other player who calls, betting can continue and the “All In” chips are made into a “side pot” which is quite literally, put on the side. The player who went “All In” is only eligible for the portion of the pot they deserve based on their final wager. All further actions involving other players that takes place in a 'side pot', the All-In player is not eligible to win.

The side pot is distinct from the main pot in that only the players still betting play for it, while the all-in player can only win the main pot. When one player is all-in, the other two may continue to bet between themselves. These additional bets are 'on the side', between the remaining two players, but in the case of a small chips All In, the side pot can become a much larger pot so much strategy is considered when betting on a side pot too. Practically any player who does not have enough chips to call a bet is declared All-In. The player is eligible for the portion of the pot up to the point of his final wager, but in this case, the “All In” is closer to a big blind call than an intimidating wager.
