      Hey elqeuimico,

      I see you have posted in English before over here, have you got a little lost? :D

      I believe the phrase "Ace in the hole" refers to having an Ace as one of your cards.

      Thanks...

      I like to post sometimes here because I use to read in english and when I ask some definitions in the spanish comunity they don'l answer me because I can't translate concepts like "Ace in the hole". I cant't traslate that in spanish, if I translate it sould be as I say to you "Ace in the pit" I mean. Literarily it doesn't mean anytithing in spanish. In fact I ask the same question in spanish comunity and nobody answer me :f_cry: . Many times you enlgish speaker use words or concepts hard to translate, so we use it using the word in english anyway.

      For example... the word Calling Station for a kind of player doesn't have right transaltion so we say Calling station too.

      Other examples is the word Tells, we sometimes say Pistas (like clues) but most of the players prefer to say Tells like you.

      @purplefizz Thaks I just made copy-paste from my post on the Spanish comunity, I write in english all next times.

      MattDenness I'm not lost :) , I typed my question here because sometimes this kind of questions in spanish comunuty they can's answerme.
