    FOLD: F-king Outrageously Loose Dude
    CALL: Contemptible A-hole Lately Lucky
    RAISE: Reprehensible A-hole Insinuating Shit about Everyone

    (I just had to join in with the abundance of profanity this thread has generated!)

    Good thing it's in the beginner's section, where everyone can get this first impression of us all!

    To the true gambler, money is never an end in itself, but simply a tool; as language is to thought.

    I resemble that remark.

    Some of the things I use when talking with Jen and others when talking poker:

    HBL: High Blind Limp. Generally when a player limps in at 40/80 blinds or higher... even 30/60.

    HBMR: High Blind Min-Raise. Same idea, expect he makes a 2x raise.

    CFC: Can't Fold A Chair, call-station in a sense.

    BAM: Bad At Math. Use this in notetaking usually when a player folds despite getting sick odds.

    B: Button
    CO: Cutoff, or one position earlier than the button
    HJ: Hijack, two ahead of button
    CP: I call the 3rd seat ahead of the button Center Position, still generalized as mid-position (MP)
    MP: 4 seats ahead of button
    EP: 5 seats ahead of button
    UTG: 6 and 7 seats ahead of button (I usually play 9-handed tables though).
    SB: Small Blind
    BB: Big Blind

    POB: Post Oak Bluff (or donk bet)
    ATC: Any Two Cards

    DLOMBB: Don't Limp On My Big Blind. Usually a shove or raise from the BB when its folded to the SB, who limps. Effective near bubbles or against scared/weak players.

    FFS: For Fuck's Sake
    FML: Fuck My Luck
    FMR: Fuck Me Running
    WTF: What The Fuck
    GFY: Go Fuck Yourself

    OK, I have a potty mouth. Sue me. I don't chat much so I never get to use them. :)

    ICS: "It's Called Saturday (Sunday)" I have a post about where this came from on my blog. Generally it refers to some sort of play by a random donk that makes no sense. Ask Jen about it, she thinks its great. :)

    RRR: (Re)Raises Are Real (usually some nit)
    BRR: Bets Are Real

    ICM: Independent Chip Model

    BF: Bubble Factor. Introduced in the book "Kill Everyone", its use is very much like ICM. Google it for a better explanation. Generally its a rating of how to adjust your required odds for calling bets in MTTs/SNGs in relation to stacks sizes and bubbles for payouts.

    #x: A raise by a factor of the BB. At 15/30 blinds, a 3x raise would be 90.

    PM: Pot Mash. A player bets/raises by simply hitting the "pot" button. Preflop this is a 3.5x raise if the player is opening the betting.

    BR: Bankroll
    BI: Buy-In

    ROI: Return On Investment. It is your total profit (loss) divided by amount spent in BIs and expressed as a percentage.

    ITM: In The Money
    GP: Games Played

    When describing the games I play I'll use some abbreviations also. A $22 turbo sit-and-go I will shorthand as a 22T SNG, with the 22 being the buy-in, the "T" meaning turbo, and SNG for sit-and-go. Here's some I can think of offhand:

    SNG: Sit-and-Go, or STT: Single Table Tournament
    MTT: Multi-Table Tournament, usually one that starts at a scheduled time
    MTSNG: Multi-Table SNG, one that starts when a certain number of players have registered. I will usually just use "x#" instead to indicate how many runners is in the MTSNG. A $12 turbo 45-man SNG would be 12Tx45.

    T: Turbo
    R: Rebuy
    B: Bounty, or KO for Knockout (depends on the site's usage)
    ST: Super-Turbo or HT: Hyper-Turbo
    DON: Double or Nothing
    TON: Triple or Nothing
    Q: Rush (I use Q for "quick" since R is rebuy, LOL)
    DS: Double Shootout
    TS: Triple Shootout
    Sat or Satty: Satellite
    6 or /6: 6-max
    HU: Heads-Up
    X: Matrix
    PS: Poker Stars
    FT: Full Tilt
    UB: Ultimate Bet
    AP: Absolute Poker
    DR: Doyle's Room
    BG or DOG: Bodog
    Car: Carbon Poker
    Cake: Cake, LOL... its short enough.

    These can often be used together. On Full Tilt there is a $17 super-turbo knockout rush tournament. When I put that in my notebook I would write "FT #XXX 17STKOQ", with the "#XXX" being the last three numbers of the ID number Full Tilt gave it. I usually don't put "MTT" behind it since I know what it is. I will use "SNG" if I play a couple amongst all my MTTs.

    When describing hands, I just use the letters and numbers you find on the cards. So, KJ is a King and a Jack. If they aren't suited I'll use an "o" behind it for "offsuit" (KJo) and if suited I'll add a lower-case "s" (KJs).

    I will often be more specific and use "s" for Spades, "h" for Hearts, "d" for Diamonds, and "c" for Clubs. So 76d would be the 7 of diamonds and the 6 of diamonds. AhKc would be the Ace of hearts and the King of clubs.

    Also, I'll use T for 10 (as in QTc), its easier. When using a random card I use X. So AXo would be an Ace and a random non-ace, offsuit. For pocket pairs I'll just say 77 for a pair of sevens or "PP" for a general sense.

    When describing flops I might put an "r" for a rainbow, or 3-suit flop. So a flop of the Ace of clubs, Jack of diamonds, and 2 of hearts would be AJ2r. If the flop was all hearts I would put the "h" behind it (AJ2h).

    Whew. Can't think of anything else at the moment. Oh, one other thing.

    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!: Something good happened. :)
    I do a new thing now. Hidden Content
