This is a discussion on Initial cards Names! within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; :icon_shak Whats the name of your initial cards in your country?
For example here at Ecuador 74 is the spanish, 25 the potato, AA American Airlines,
One thing about the UK is that the term 'boat' is never used to describe the fullhouse hand, only pro poker players will know what you mean in a poker game if you say 'boat' here, must use the word 'full house'. Also 'quads' is very rarely ever used where I come from, people will usually say 'four of a kind' all out loud instead... Lol...
Some people who are new to poker call a 'straight' a 'street'. Rather than saying 'king-high flush' here they say 'flush with king high'

To be honest, my grandfather is in critical condition (will definitely be passing away soon) but I have said my goodbyes (he is in severe stroke but can understand what you say, he can show emotion just not express words well)... I am not too sad about it as he's been there my entire childhood but he is one of my closest human beings alive... I will miss him it is definite.
In Western Europe, the first playing cards appeared in the XIII century. In our country, they appeared much later - according to the most common version of maps in Russia began to play at the turn of the XVI and XVII centuries. Complete unanimity about the country from which the first maps came to Russia is not among the historians. The most popular version - the cards came to Russia from the Czech Republic - because in this country the maps appeared at the same time, when in Western Europe. But there are also "Polish" and "German" versions.

Some time ago i was watching poker stream where streamer had 22. Streamer won pot and he said deuces never lose *4Head*. I said in chat that ofcourse, lowest pair, but always lucky hand, ofcourse ducks never lose. One of the mod said deuces, not ducks *NotThisWay*. I know 22 hand also as ducks, barely hear word deuces.
