Talking with friends

"Let's play poker."

"We're playing poker at Tim's place tonight."

"Are you any good at poker?"
"Have you played poker before?"
"Do you know how to play poker?"

"It's boring when people play so conservatively."
"It takes too much time to play if people keep folding like this."

Talking about poker

"I had three Kings on the flop but I couldn't fill up.  I got beat with a flush that showed up on the river."
"I went 'all in' with a pair of aces before the flop.  I lost to a guy who called with a pair of fours.  Another four came out and I was out of the game."
"I can't believe he got so lucky."
"Jerry is so lucky.  He always gets the cards he needs."
"I shouldn't have called."
"I shouldn't have folded.  I would have won."
"Where's the courtesy show." - This statement is commonly used when somebody wins because everyone else folded.  Then the other people will ask to see the cards.  Most of the time, the player will not show his hand.  So a courtesy show is showing your hand when you don't have to.

"He bought the pot." - When somebody wins because nobody called.  They say he bought the pot because he bet very high and nobody wanted to risk it.  So his high bid bought the pot.

"I knew I won because I got a full house on the 'turn'."
"I would have won this hand too.  I am such a chicken."
"What did you have?"
"I can't believe I lost with a straight.  The damn flush showed up on the river."
"I had two aces and he had two kings.  The last card was a king so he won."

"Would you go all in with a pair of fours before the flop?"
"Would you rather have a pair of fives or an Ace King suited."
"You're so easy to read.  You give your hand away every time."
