What is 5-bet in Poker?

The term 5-bet refers to the third re-raise in a betting round, usually seen preflop.

For example, suppose you raise to $10 preflop with $1/$2 blinds. If a player re-raises, that’s a 3-bet. If you re-raise again, that’s a 4-bet. If a player re-raises again, that’s a 5-bet.
