What is Air 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.
