Homework Assignment


Someone asked me about nicknames for various poker hands. I know the usual ones (Rockets, Hiltons, Hammer), and I've heard discussions on some other ones like A7-the Tourist, A2-Cheney (bullet and a duck), 62 or 73-Canadian Hammer (depending on the exchange rate), etc. Has anybody put together a solid list of hand nicknames? What are your favorite (names, not necessarily hands)? Let me know. Everybody's got their own little nicknames or pet hands, let's hear 'em!

My new favorite is

The Shocker: Black ace and red deuce

There's also Snowman Tater Legs (SMTL): 83 (suited or non)

and my personal creation

Mr. October: 44

Chilly (Infant Days, Sleepless Nights) has a glossary of "blogger terms" with a few hand nicks in it.

I had asked myself the same question a few months ago and found a good site of nicknames.....

Above is a list on wikipedia

My favorite would have to be Q3 - The San Fransisco bus boy. A queen with a trey.

69 - Big Lick

Great list. Some of the other ones I'd heard of (and they differ from doubleuwhy's wikipedia list, don't know why):

QJ - Brokeback (queen on jack)
KQ - Kournikova (looks great but never wins)
T2 - Terminator
JJ - Fish hooks
AJ - Blackjack

Keep 'em coming. I'm getting a list together.

57 off-suit - Filipino Big Slick
86 - UB (as is "UB broke if you keep playing this hand")
J4 - The Jackhammer (I'm not sure why J2 isn't the Jackhammer...)

Matt Silverthorn said...

I think the Jackhammer was coined by CJ because he kept taking down pots with it.

iamhoff said...

Well, when you're that lucky, you can get away with anything. I'll put the comments together with some other ones I've found, and post it this weekend. Great job everybody!
