Free Card

Any card a player gets to receive or see without having to commit additional chips. For example, in hold’em if everyone checks the flop, the turn is a “free card.” Often used with reference to drawing hands, such as when a player flops a flush draw, then isn’t made to call a bet on the flop, making the turn a “free card” to try to complete the flush.
