Poker Hand Slang

I found this and, since I plan on playing a BUNCH of Texas Hold 'Em durring the next week I figured I would share them.... Ok, it's realy so that I can easily come back here and read them.

 

The project list for the week off is extensive. Finish How to Lose Your Job, Pt. 2... seriously mess around with Photoshop via a fine Xmas gift from the Mom... tidy up my Del.icio.us bookmarks to make some sense... hey, I should clean-up my local bookmarks, as well. NOTE TO SELF.

Oh yeah, I'm going to play some poker, as well. In preparation for a Vegas trip in February, the boys are gathering together to put in some reps in at a local casino. The idea being to get a feel for a professionally run poker game versus the home game where we're drunk, loud, and sloppy. Not that you can't do the same in Vegas, it's just that you'll lose lots of cash to folks who aren't.

I've been putting together a list of slang to describe Texas Hold 'Em hands for a few weeks now. It's a list of common and uncommon names for those two hole cards that I've collected from websites too many to credit here, so I'll just say THANK YOU INTERNET.
