Nits and Lice

  1. Noun

    Mites and lice; two pair, threes and twos.


    EXAMPLE: "We were playing 7-card stud. I had a two and a three as my whole card and a two and a three as my door card. I made nits and lice when I got a two on fourth street. It was a half-decent hand, and was especially good since neither of the pairs were exposed."

  2. Noun

    Mites and lice; a full house using twos and threes; twos full of threes or threes full of twos.


    EXAMPLE: "I had nits and lice. I didn't care that the cards were low. It was still a full house."
