What is Burn in Poker Terms?

In poker, “burn” refers to the process of discarding the top card from the deck face-down before dealing community cards (such as the flop, turn, or river) onto the table.

This practice is done to prevent cheating by ensuring that no player has seen the next card to be dealt.
