Heard At The Tables

More poker slang from around the world, and the Internets.

  • San Francisco Busboy – Another name for the old , with the same etymology. Just as funny if…
  • zombie – Someone showing no emotion or behaviour. A good poker face. “He’s a total zombie, but only when he actually has a hand, which is kind of ironic.”
  • Upstairs! – another way to say “I raise”.
  • philosopher – slang for a card cheat in England, apparently. I like this one.
  • No vacancy! – another way to announce that you hit the boat.
  • foot – A terrible hand. As in,”my hand’s so bad, it might as well be a foot”
