Default "The Wheel"

"The Wheel" is the name I just created for the greatest of poker anomolies (sp). On Thursday, I played online for about three hours and then played live for another 3.

During online play - 2 table sng, down to 3. I get AJ suited in diamonds, raising fun with one other guy. Flop comes T74 with 2 diamonds. I check, other guys bets big, I move in (I had him covered) on semi-bluff. He calls. Turn is Q of diamonds for my nut flush. River is K of diamonds for my first royal flush (though completely unnecessary). I was so psyched I blanked on how to get a screenshot, hence no picture.

During live play - 7 person tourney with 2 rebuys, down to 5 after rebuys. I get 56 suited in clubs. Small raise with me and two other callers. Flop comes 34J the 3/4 being clubs. Pot gets tripled, only me and original raiser left. Turn is 7 of clubs to give me the str8 flush. Won a big pot and knocked raiser out.

Also during live play - Same tourney, down to 3. I get TT on button. Raise 3X BB, one caller. Flop is TT9. You get the idea, I got quads.

So anyways, I got my first royal in the afternoon and a str8 flush in the evening followed by quads. I also got a str8, a flush, a boat, trips, two pair, etc. I got EVERY hand possible in the same day! I can't even begin to understand how unlikely this is, but I'm giving a name to this occurence. Now you all go out there and try and get "The Wheel". It just might happen.

The Wheel has been taken....It's another name for an A2345 straight which is the best low hand possible.

Maybe you should call it the Whee.

I would propose using a term from baseball-- the cycle (single, double, triple and home run in the same game). What you describe sounds very similar.

I'm aware of "The Wheel" as used to describe A to 5 str8. I still think it fits even if it will have two meanings. I mean come on. The cards are rolling out.

I believe the term "card rack" is appropriate here.

I think "Total Ownage" would suffice

How bout borrowing from a similar accomplishment in baseball, and referring to it as "The Cycle".

For any who are not familiar, thats a single, double, triple, and homerun in the same game.

I may be completely out of line with this suggestion...but I think it would be more than appropriate to borrow a baseball term, "The Cycle," for this poker phenomenon.

For those of you who don't follow baseball too closely, "The Cycle" is used to describe the event of a single player having a single, double, triple, and a home run in any given game.

What do you guys think?

just being the resident asshole

That's funny. I'm going to suggest alternative names for my wheel. I oppose using "the cycle" because it is a baseball term, we need a poker term. Suggestions include:

The Roll
Absolution
River Raid (after a classic Atari game I love)
The Beyond
Gambler's Glory
The Uber Nuts
The Series
Absolutely Fucking Everything

You like?

I like!
