Smooth Call

To call an opponent's bet in a situation when raising would have been the more conventional play.

For example, a player in the cutoff opens with a preflop raise, then the player on the button chooses only to call and not raise with pocket aces (disguising the strength of his hand). The button player is said to have "smooth called." See also the similar term "flat call."
