Back Raise

What Does It Mean in Poker?

A Back Raise refers to a re-raise made by a player who has previously called a bet or raise during the same round of betting.

Example: Suppose Mark raises preflop, Jane calls next to act, and Greg 3-bets. If everyone folds to Jane and she re-raises, that would be a back raise.
