Catch Bluffing

 

This term is often used when you wind by calling or raising someone who is bluffing.

 

Acey-Deucey

 

This is actually a phrase which could have few different meanings. Very often it’s being used when there’s a two-pair hand in which one of the pair is aces and the other is deuces. In some slangs “Acey-Deucey” means a refference to the Hold’Em hand of Ax & 2x.

 

Alexander

 

Inspired by the name of legendary conqueror Alexander the Great, this term is often reffering to the King of Clubs. In the same way           King of Spades is David, King of Hearts is Charlemagne and King of Diamonds is the one and only Julius Caesar.

 

Dark Bet

 

A dark bet is when the player announces a bet on the next betting, but before the cards being dealt. The player with the “dark bet” must be the first one to act on the coming round.

 

Barbara Hutton

 

Barbara Hutton is the nickname for the hand 10x and 5x. The hands are named after the famous American heiress and philanthropist.

 

Bug

 

We call it a bug when in some particular variants of poker there’s a wild card which can represent either an ace or fill a gap in a straight or a flush.
