What Does It Mean in Poker?

Removal (aka blockers) is when a player holds a specific card which ‘blocks’ their opponents from having combinations of that same card. For example, if you hold A♠ K and the board reads J♠ T♠ 2♠ 56, it’s impossible for any opponent to have an Ace-high flush, as you hold the A♠ blocker.
