Definition of GG

You will often see this expression "GG" written in the chat of online tournaments. GG means "Good Game" in English. It is the common expression poker players use to congratulate players at their table. GG will be used most often in tournaments when players are already in the paid seats. Imagine a final table, there are 9 players left in the tournament, two players are all in, one wins the jackpot, the other player is eliminated and the winner writes to the loser in the chat "GG", as a way for him to say "well done".

GG, NH, NC, TY, etc!

If you play online poker, you will see all of these acronyms that are common in every country, no matter what language you speak. An online discussion might look like this:

- Wow, NC, NH!

- TY! GG!

- GG!

Translation: One player wanted to bluff another. The player called the all-in bet on the river with a single pair. The player is surprised and expresses to the other player that he is surprised and finds his call bold. "Wow, nice call, nice hand!" TY means "thank you" and both players conclude with a GG, "Good Game".
