This is a discussion on Do you have any personal nicknames for hands? within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; There are a bunch of common nicknames for hands but do you have any personal nicknames for hands? I like to call 9-9 the Great
I call all the hands as standard, but I call the AK Alexander Kerzhakov. Because it seems to me that the frequency of hitting the flop and the goal is the same for them. Alexander Kerzhakov if anyone does not know this is a Russian footballer.
hand nicknames are often used in Lotto (there is such a game in many countries). There, the numbers are pronounced aloud, so nicknames are often used. I don’t think that the one who pronounces the nickname in poker will win a lot))
There are so many, and depending where you play. I was always nicknamed the Deuce guy because I referred to Pocket 2s as Pocket Deuces, and the people around here had never heard of them, They called them Ducks.
AA Rockets or Arrows
KK was always known as Ace magnets or Butchers
But I am sure that other countries have their favorite names for all sorts of hands.
My favorite name is for 10,2 is Dollies or Dolly Brunson as he won I think 3 world series with 10,2
I watched one on YouTube and having a massive chip lead heads-up he called an all-in bet from the other player with 10,2.
The other guy showed AK and said "I am beating you"
"Only for now" he smiled back as if he knew what was coming and sure enough the flop and turn bricked and Doyle Paired his 2 on the river winning him the world series.
I have many times called an all-in bet from another player without even looking at my hold cards if I have him out chipped, only because if I looked at them I would probably fold.
re: Poker & Do you have any personal nicknames for hands?
I call 52s or 52o my "Seneca Hand". It makes no sense and has no meaning for anyone else but me. Why? One afternoon, I was playing at Seneca Niagara Casino and got that hand so often I began showing it whenever I got it. The dealers were not happy with me, but hey, they were the ones giving me the cards.
In 4-5 hours, I believe that hand came up at least 12-15 times.
It was not a profitable afternoon.
