What Does It Mean in Poker?

“Air” simply refers to a weak hand that has little or no value. Also known as an “airball”.

For example, if you have Eight-Seven in your hand and the flop is Ace-Four-Two, you have “air”.

These hands should be folded most of the time, but sometimes it makes sense to bluff with them. Check out the related articles below for more on bluffing with air.
