"Gabriel W. "Gabe" Kaplan[1] (born March 31, 1944) is an American comedian, actor and professional poker player. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. He is best known for his role as Gabriel "Gabe" Kotter in the 1970s sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter, but he has become more visible in recent years in relation to the popularity of poker, especially the "No-Limit Texas Hold-'Em" type, particularly as co-host and joint commentator, with A.J. Benza, on High Stakes Poker on GSN."

level
Quote:
level
Verb or noun. A joke or comment not meant to be taken seriously, but presented in a serious manner.

Thought of as a "cool" thing to do on various websites; the level also functions as a get out of jail free card when your comment is decisively shown to be silly or misinformed because you can claim you were "just levelling".

The term originates from the question of whether you take the comment seriously depending on the "level" you are thinking. In a game of poker, the levels of thinking are:

level 0 = thinking about the cards you're holding
level 1 = thinking about the cards your opponent is holding
level 2 = thinking about what your opponent thinks you are holding
level 3 = thinking about what your opponent thinks you think he his holding
etc

Person 1 - Generic ridiculous stupid comment.

Person 2 - I really hope you are levelling here.

Person 1 - No I'm serious.

Person 3 - Haha you're stupid, you should have left it as a level.
