This comes up all the time, what is considered the standard definition? I think of it as, I have his best hole cards beat right now.

[ QUOTE ]
Prax, your definition of boardlocked is drawing dead, then. It's helpful to distinguish between the two...

[/ QUOTE ]It's the definition I got out of the books I read when I started to play - but words and meanings evolve, so now, I think, people use "boardlock" when they mean "I know I have the best hand right now." Classically, it did mean drawing dead.

If the convention is now to mean "best right now" I'm fine with that. But I'm not sure that's standard usage in the wider poker community. I'm easy, tho' so in future "drawing dead" it shall be!

Hero has board lock where he unquestionably has the best hand and best draw, however if villain makes his draw and Hero bricks, Hero loses.
