**Summary: **
A field K is ample if for every geometrically integral K-variety V
with a smooth K-point, V(K) is Zariski dense in V.
A field K is Galois-potent if every geometrically integral K-variety
has a closed point whose residue field is Galois over K.
We prove that every ample field is Galois-potent.
But we construct also non-ample Galois-potent fields;
in fact, every field has a regular extension with these properties.
