    In a post I was skimming through, someone mentioned that they had no idea of what the author of the post was on about because of the poker lingo, so I have searched the web and compiled a dictionary of poker terms that are commonly used.


    Here are the most common poker terms- I hope they are usefull

    My only guess and this is a guess but a Queen can refer to a dragqueen, and in the USA they have a saying queer as a $3 bill. This is because there is no such thing as a $3 bill, making it a bit queer. also, queer is used to describe a gay person.

    Please note, this is not my views, i'm only stating what others say, and i don't descriminate against anyone gay. Just wanted to say that so that if anyone thinks
    i am being mean here, i'm not, just stating why this hand may be called that.

    Really not sure now where the waitor part comes in at, after posting my reply, roflmao
