About the Book

From Zooted to Brass Brazilians, Kamikaze to American Airlines, Drawing Dead to a Gutshot: How to Talk Poker teaches you all the poker lingo you need to know to talk like the poker pros. Veteran poker player Brant Janeway takes you on a tour of the language of poker, giving you the vocabulary you need to get right in the game. From The Hilton Sisters (a pair of queens) to Motown (a jack with a five—”the Jackson Five”), Drawing Dead to a Gutshot illustrates how the poker vocabulary has evolved from pop culture—and how poker expressions have made the jump into the mainstream vernacular. The book also demonstrates the ever-changing nature of language and how the terms of a particular time period often preserve a bit of that era’s history.
