Useful poker information:
- DECLARE - In high/low games, declaring one's hand as high or low or both ways (usually done with chips in hand). Usually played in home games; casinos tend to play CARDS SPEAK.
- SET - In Hold'em, three of a kind where two of the cards are hole cards.
- STACKED [DECK] - A deck that has been arranged to give one player a huge advantage. Also: RIGGED.
- 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.
- BOAT - A FULL HOUSE, three of a kind and a pair.
- CRYING CALL - A call made with little chance of ultimately winning, but marginally better than an immediate fold.
