One-eyed King

  1. Noun

    The King of Diamonds; Kd.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The name originates from the fact that the King of diamonds is typically pictured in profile, making only one eye visible.


    EXAMPLE: "I had Qd-Jd in the pocket and the flop was 10d-9s-Ad. The turn was the 7h. I called a small raise hoping to complete my straight draw or the flush. I had a hard time maintaining my poker face when the one-eyed King was dealt on the river. I won the hand with my first royal flush."
