Poker stake (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ante

'poker stake' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for ante that I've seen before include "Stake; before (Lat.)" , "'Behind, before (4)'" , "Fixed stake" , "Preceding birth" , "Pay" .)

I've seen this clue in The Daily Mail, the USA Today, The Star Tribune, The Mirror, the Evening Standard and the Sydney Morning Herald.
