Inactive Player

An inactive player is a player who is no longer participating in the game, pot, or hand, and has no stake in the game’s outcome.

In poker, you become an inactive player as soon as you fold, because, from that point onwards, you no longer have a stake in the outcome of the game.

An inactive player is the opposite of an active player.
