Question by Pete: What does a poker player get if he is sponsored by a poker site?
There are many players who get sponsored by poker sites like PokerStars, Full Tilt and others. Can someone tell me what all does a sponsorship entail? The more detailed an answer the better.
Thanks!

Different deals have different perks. I doubt they are all the same.

The biggest thing is buying into tournaments. Joe Hachem isn’t paying ,000 to play in the main event, Pokerstars is.

Answer by LegFuJohnson
I’ll be honest, I’ve heard of Hold em poker.
I’ve heard of Stud Poker
I’ve heard of Draw Poker
I’ve ever heard of Strip Poker.
I’ve never heard of Bahamian Poker.

So I don’t even know if anyone plays Bahamian Poker professionally.

But seriously… I went to the cardplayer.com database, and searched by location, and there was only two names listed from the Bahamas, and not a lot of winnings, there, I hadn’t heard of either of them.

I have recently become a fan of TV poker. Where did the term "the nuts" come from referring to a great hand

Question by james c: I have recently become a fan of TV poker. Where did the term “the nuts” come from referring to a great hand

Best answer:

Answer by pokercoach
Actually “the nuts” mean a hand who cannot be beat (at a specific moment of the game).
For example: your hole cards are: 5.6 of heart and the flop come:3.4.2. with 2heart. At the moment you have the nuts, no hand can’t beat you.

Take care

old movie line "gin" "we're playing poker"?

July 20, 2010 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Q&A Forum

Question by haysme: old movie line “gin” “we’re playing poker”?
I have this image in my head of a black and white movie (I don’t think it’s a TV show) about a man and woman playing cards. Something else is going on in the room, I think. The woman puts down her cards and says “Gin”. He then turns to her and says “we’re playing poker”. Does anyone know what movie this is from? It’s driving me nuts!

Best answer:

Answer by Rachel
i have heard this line before! i googled the quote and an episode of Will and Grace came up. I think that is the only place i have heard it…the episode is called “Loose Lips Sink Relationships” season 4, episode 5. the coversation is between will and karen, when she said “gin” she was actually asking for a drink. sorry if this isnt it!
