Definition of exterior

What is meant by outside poker is a type of pot. In English, it is called a "main pot" and a "side pot". An outside pot is created when there is a player already all in in the hand and other players are still involved in the hand with a remaining stack. Nothing better than a scenario to better understand what is meant by an outside pot.

An example of an outdoor pot

In this hand, 3 players are involved; the button, the small blind and the big blind. The player on the button had 10 big blinds preflop and pushed all in. The players in the blinds had 20 big blinds preflop and called the raise. On the flop, we have a pot of 30 big blinds (10 x 3) which will be called the "main pot". The players in the blinds are still in the hand with 10 big blinds left each. On the flop, the small blind goes all-in (10bb) and the big blind calls. These big blinds will be sent to the outside pot to form a second pot (20 big blinds). ? At the showdown, we will look at the hands of the two players in the blinds to see who wins the outside pot (which the button will not be entitled to) and then compare the 3 hands to determine who will win the main pot (30 big blinds)
