Table Stakes All poker games are played table stakes. This means one can only bet what one has in front of him on the table on any given hand. Players cannot reach into their pockets and add to their bets. If a player runs out of chips in front of him in the middle of a hand, he or she is considered all in.
Tap In a no limit game, if you tap your opponent you are making a bet equal to all of his chips.
Tapping the Aquarium To tell an amateur player what he/she is doing wrong.
