Variance is something that happens in the short term. Probabilities willl take millions of trials to even out. For example, AA is an 80% favorite over KK. You may have AA against KK 3x in a row and still lose.

Same thing flipping a coin. In the short term, you may have one side get flipped more than the other. Over millions of trials, they will get closer to 50/50.

Variance means that for every given situation at the table, there are various outcomes that will happen by chance. For instance, say Hand 1 and Hand 2 both have a 50% chance to win on the flop. Just because it's 50/50 doesn't mean that either hand will win 50% of the time. For instance, if you ran the hand 10 times, Hand 1 could win it all 10 times! Varience in poker generally refers to a spot or multiple spots where you get your money in favorably but still lose the hand(s).

A donk (donkey) post is when a player just sitting down immediately posts the big blind before they are required to do so. A donk bet is when a player who just called preflop and is out of position against the aggressor bets before the aggressor has a chance to act.
