ALL IN Poker Trivia

Two more days until ALL IN is released!

The hero of the story, I.C. Tucker, is a professional poker player, so today I'm offering a Poker Trivia Quiz. The answers will appear on Sunday's blog post when I announce the winner of the millefiori necklace (see Tuesday's post.)

See if you can identify the correct definitions of these poker terms.

c) Asking the dealer to deal cards after the hand is over and the main pot is won already.

2. Blistering
a) Getting angry at the table.

4. Draw Dead
a) To draw five cards that are worthless.
b) Draw to a hand that cannot win.
c) To draw more than three cards at once.

5. Fast

b) Winning several hands in a row
c) Betting quickly without much thought

6. Limp In
a) To enter the pot by calling rather than raising.
b) To be the last one to the table.
