Poker Hand Nicknames

Poker Hand Nicknames

This pub quiz handout round features 15 pairs of playing cards that could be dealt as starting cards in a game of Texas hold'em poker. 15 nicknames for these hands are given in a mixed order and the aim is to match these up to the correct hand. For example, the nickname "Dolly Parton" should be matched to the hand made up of a 9 and 5, referring to Dolly Parton's hit single "Nine To Five".

As in the example above, this is more a test on teams' lateral thinking and general knowledge and not so much a test on teams' knowledge of poker or playing cards.

It is recommended that this round is used as a handout round. You can find more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes on our handout rounds page.

If you buy this handout round, we will give you access to pdf files you can download. Two of these will be for the main handout sheet - one as illustrated above, and one in a more plain format. The third sheet will contain the answers. You probably already have everything you need to access and use these rounds in your quiz, but you might want to check our requirements page to make sure.

Please note that this handout round also appears in Weekly Quiz 527. If you would prefer to buy pub quiz packs complete with a handout round, a variety of other question and answer rounds, plus specially designed answer sheets for teams to write their answers on, then please visit our Complete Quizzes section. If, however, you prefer to use your own format for your quizzes, then this handout round should help towards creating an entertaining and challenging quiz.
