Paddy Power Poker Pays Scots

It makes sense in a cosmic sort of way; the winners of the first ever paddypowerpoker.com poker event, called the Grand Slam, are a team of poker players from Scotland. Held at the Star City Casino in Birmingham on January 11th and 12th, the Grand Slam saw teams from all over the United Kingdom as well as parts of Europe.

Poker argot:

  • DOUBLE BELLY BUSTER - A two-way inside straight. E.g., 3-5-6-7-9.
  • BOARD - The exposed cards in Hold'em and stud. Also BOARD CARDS.
  • TOURNAMENT - A highly structured game involving potentially dozens of tables where all participants pay an entry fee and obtain a fixed number of chips. Once a tournament has started, additional players may not enter. As the game progresses players bust out and are eliminated until only one winner remains.
  • IMPLIED ODDS - A refinement to POT ODDS which includes money not yet in the pot. Considers the potential extra bets and winnings made when a player forms a very good hand.
  • STUCK - Down a nontrivial amount of money, as in "he's stuck $800".
  • BAD-BEAT JACKPOT - In some cardrooms, a prize that is shared by the players in a game, when a very good hand (usually Aces full, or better) is beaten by a higher hand. Jackpots are usually financed by taking a drop ($1 is a common amount) from every pot. A typical division of the jackpot will give the losing hand 50 %, the winning hand 25 %, and the other players at the table share the remaining 25 % of the Jackpot.
