  • Starting hands

    As you will guess I'm feeling a bit silly (no really so...

    I got my descriptors for some poker starting hands, I just thought I'd share a few.
    Additions obviously welcome.

    AA: The Military Hand. Every time I see that, I stand to attention and add, Sir!
    But then my avatar being a Sgt. Major...

    KK: The Brazilian hand. Ever played a table full of Brazilians? They go KKKKKK all the time (their way of laughing). Strangely enough, when they hold KK, they don't laugh much.

    QQ: The "cute" hand. Can be dodgy.

    JJ: Jesse James.

    TT: The Audi hand

    AK: The anti-arcraft hand.

    AQ: The Al-Qaida Hand. Can be just as deadly.

    AJ: The Angelina hand. Handle with care.

    JK: The Blues hand. This just had to do with one of my favourite local bands, called, you guessed, the Jay Kaye Band.

    Q8: The Arabic Hand. One of the world's top oil producing countries is called just that.

    AK47 (Omaha) : The Russian hand. Scary.

        55: Double Nickels
        47o: Asian Aces (ask Spudder47)
        QJo: Hawaii--forget who it was but I remember reading an article by some pro about starting hands once where he said QJo should be called Hawaii because if you took all the money you could have saved by folding this hand you could afford a Hawaiian vacation every year.
        AK: Big Slick (he's evil right DLeviathan?)
        99: Barbara Feldon (I love Get Smart)
