This is a poker term used to describe a card that has its value (suit and rank) hidden from the other players. The dealer deals these cards face down to each player.

In Texas Hold-Em each player starts with two hole cards. In Omaha everyone gets four cards. In Seven Card Stud each gets two hole cards face down and after four up cards the final seventh card is added to the hole cards.
