I was thinking back to when we used to have tournaments and heads up games in college and I was trying to remember the names that we had for all of the different hands that we made names for after really bad beats and I just wanted to hear some other peoples' creative spin on the game.

These are the names that we mostly used, some are ours and some are widely known, we were a diverse group of college guys, and so some names may be offensive to some people, but they are all intended for fun, not for harm-

AA-Pocket Rockets(Obviously), Spaceships, Nukes
AK-Big Slick (Of course), King Arthur
Q4-Hot Mustard
Q3-Gay Waiter (Queen with a tre)
JJ-Fishhooks, Pocket Jews/Rabbis
95-Banker's Hours (9-5), Suit and Tie, All Business
75-Dominator
69-Big Lick
45-Colt 45
44-Dirty Harry
35-Wrecking Ball

That's all I can remember for now, but feel free to continue the thread and share your creativity.

I forgot all about the Brunson...does anyone but Doyle ever win with that hand? Suited or unsuited I've never come close to hitting anything with the brunson, even when I folded em. I like "snowmen" though...I'll have to incorporate that into my vocab.

I like "sailboats" and "love connection" as well.

Good stuff. Keep 'em comin people.

Alternatively, 99 is German virgin (nein nein:eek: ) and A4 is ladyboy (looks good at first glance, but on closer inspection:eek: ).

I'm really glad I started this post, we're gettin some great responses-
"Mop Squeezers"-priceless
"Matches"
"German Virgin"
I especially like the reasoning behind "Ladyboy"
"Four Tits" is great

I'm definitely gonna have to use these when I play. There's nothing better than being at a home game and dominating someone with a hand with a great name.

What people always forget when they say "I've got no idea how he won two Main Events with that hand" is that he was heads up - people win with all sorts of horrible stuff heads up. Joe Hachem did it with 7-3

Back to the point though - when I deal bar games, we entertain ourselves by naming the flops instead. A few favourites for cards on the board:

6 - the average man
10 - the better than average man
5 - the wheelchair
5d - the pimp's wheelchair
33x - small Irish forest
rag-rag-rag - the Godfather 3 (a disappointing flop - alternatively, the Alien 3)

62 - Bird Flu (sick/six duck)
I like it.

64 =Elmo (64s Royal Elmo)

AQ used to be Doyle Brunson according to his SS1 book because he never played it. T2 adopted HIM! On TV he'll always fight his own hands to push them away. I think Phil Ivey Got the AQ. He went through a horrible run with them a while back
