Frames Per Second. The general benchmark for computer performance in a video game. Refers to the number of times the image on a computer monitor gets refreshed per second. 60 fps is generally the benchmark for acceptable performance; that provides a buffer for when the action in a game gets heavier.

In poker, stands for Fancy Pants Syndrome, or alternatively, Fancy Play Syndrome.

If you're constantly getting fancy, betting in a non-standard and deceptive way rather than value-betting your good hands and checking/folding your bad ones, you're probably suffering from Fancy Play Syndrome. Especially if it comes back to bite you.
Why did you check the nuts on the river in this hand? Looks like you're suffering from a case of FPS.
