- FULL OF - Describes a full house. "Fives full of queens" is 5-5-5-Q-Q.
- NICKEL - Five dollars, usually represented by a red casino check.
- RAISE - To wager more than the minimum required to call, forcing other players to put in more money as well.
- DOUBLE BELLY BUSTER - A two-way inside straight. E.g., 3-5-6-7-9.
- 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.
