What is a Fish in betting?
Fish is a term which is commonly used in poker. It is normally used in a derogatory manner to indicate a bad player. It is jokingly said that if you look around a poker table and you are unable to identify the fish, you better watch out as you might be the fish! Conversely, the term ‘Shark’ is used to indicate a strong player. The terms can also be applied to bettors.
