A Few Good Lines

Share this
How many lines have you heard at the poker table? How many lines have you read on signs on the walls of small poker rooms? The quips and quotes heard at the poker table are sometimes refreshing and unique, other times old and boring. Most of the unique ones I've heard have all been in smaller rooms, sometimes a single poker table in a bar.

A few quips and quotes:

Folding: "Gotta go, here comes Hank Snow." (I'm assuming that statement only works because it rhymes.)

Betting a buck and a quarter: "I'll bet a cow and a calf."

Wishing someone wasn't giving you a call: "I'd rather have frost on my peaches than you in my pot."

Signs on poker room walls:

  • We'll cash a check for you for $20 if you leave a $50 deposit.
  • Sexual harassment will not be tolerated; however, it will be graded.
  • I know they're cheating because they aren't playing the cards I'm dealing them.
  • Rule No. 1, The house decision is always final. Rule No 2. If in doubt, revert to Rule No. 1.
  • Tipping is not a city in China.
  • I know they're cheating Ma, but it's the only game in town.
