Court Card

  1. Noun

    Any face card; any King, Queen, or Jack.


    EXAMPLE: "In Texas Hold'em most beginners will play any pocket pair of court cards really aggressively, but they are all vulnerable if there is an Ace on the board. Pocket Jacks are especially overplayed. Since there is such a good chance that someone will pair an overcard, they're really only good if there are no overcards on the board or if you make trips."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    SYNONYMS: Coat Card, Face Card, Paint
