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. Sweden, France, Wales, England, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and, of course, Scotland, all were represented by teams of poker players.
The team prize of 110,000 was paid out to the Scots, and there were individual prizes of 50,000, 30,000 and 20,000 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively…

Casino poker language:
- FORCED BET - In some stud games a player may be required to make a bet to start the action on the first card. This is similar conceptually to blinds and antes, but in this case is dependent on the cards shown rather than player position. Usually the weakest hand is forced to bet.
- STRAIGHT FLUSH - A hand consisting of 5 cards in sequence and the same suit.
- PROP - Also PROPOSITION PLAYER. An employee of the gaming establishment whose primary purpose is to keep enough players at a table to prevent breaking up the game for lack of players. Unlike SHILLs "props" make a small hourly wage but play with their own money, winning or losing based on their skill.
- BUTTON CHARGE - A periodic fee paid by whoever is the button, perhaps every 20 minutes or 30 minutes. Constitutes part or all of the HOUSE CUT.
- ON THE COME - A situation where the player does not have a complete hand but hopes to make one if the right cards come up.
- OPENER - The player who opens the betting, especially in draw poker. A hand may have no openers, in which case it is PASSED OUT, i.e., new hands are dealt.
