I guess reading this is helping. I am starting to understand most of you short hand now. I enjoy your posts but at first it was a bit frustrating to try and follow it. I think with time I will learn all the short cut terms.
So, I think we're going to have to give everyone a refresher course on what I'm saying.
6-max - poker played with a maximum of 6 players at the table.
Full Ring - poker played with usually 9 or 10 players at the table
CO - The CutOff - the player who is immediately right of the dealer
Button - the player who is the 'dealer'. Gets to act last on all streets, yadda yadda. Canadians call this the PUCK also.
EP - early position - those who are just left of the blinds
Blinds - those who must put up money blindly into a pot before they get their hands
Offsuit - not the same suit
Showdown - when the players have bet and called or checked the river card, they "show down" their hands.
Chop the pot - to cut a pot into sections as people have the same hand and they "tied".
- AJo - Ace Jack Offsuit
- KJs - King Jack Suited
- 72o - the hammer
- Ducks - 22
- Sailboats - 44
- Dinner For Two - 69
It goes on and on... post a comment if you want to see anything else defined... :)
