      Hi all!

      Joined Pokerstrategy yesterday and had my ups and downs... After tilting last night and going down to 20 I am now at 40 again after following the SSS word by word. Things look great!

      Now to my actual question... Does anyone know any (common) nicknames for your starting hands?

      The ones I know:

      AA - American Airlines / Pocket Rockets
      AK - Anna Kournikova
      99 - German Virgin

      anyone got more? I'll add them to the original post

      Cheers!

      It's a funny opinion that AK never wins... In my book it's ranked #9 for expected value (around .5 BB) and #6 if suited (~.75 BB).

      72o - Beer hand (or dutchman's hand if you will ;) )
      95 - Dolly Parton (just think about the song :) )
      22 - Ducks
      K9 - guess ;)
      T2 - Texas Dolly

      A8 is Dead man's hand only if they're spades or clubs iirc (though the original definition came from 5 card draw so it's a bit fuzzy anyway)

      Edit: Damn, forgot one of my favorites: Q7 - Computer hand

      Hmm can you explain some of the extra ordinary ones? For example why is 72 the "beer hand"?

      Because you need far to much of it to play that hand ;) .


      which others?

      K9 = Canine, because of the pronunciation
      95= Dolly Parton because of her song "Working 9 to 5"


      55= Speed limit - Think I heard of this one, wasn't 55mph a designated federal speed law in the USA that was notorious for being removed after it was completely ignored?

      Don't know all of them though.

      KK - Ace Magnets

      55mph was the nationwide highway speed here in the US for a very long time until 10 or so years ago when the law was repealed, allowing each state to decide for itself (most chose 65, 70, or 75.) I've never heard about 55 being notoriously removed due to being universally ignored though.
