Now, Words And Their Stories, a programme in special English by the voice of America. 
 
It is surprising how many expressions that Americans use everyday came from the card game of poker. For example, you hear the expression ace in the hole used by many people who would never think of going near poker table. An ace the hole is any argument plan or thing kept hidden until needed .  It is used especially when it can turn failure into success.

 

In poker and most card games, the ace is the highest and most valuable card. It is often a winning card. In one kind of poker game, the first card to each player is given face down. A player does not show this card to the other players. The other cards are dealt face up. The players bet money each time they will receive another card. No one knows until the end of the game whoes hidden card is the winner. Often the ace in the hole wins the game.

 

Smart card players especially those who play for larger amount of money closely watch the person who deals the cards. They are watching to make sure he is dealing honestly. They want to be sure that he is not dealing off the bottom of the stack of cards. A dealer who is doing that has stacked the deck. He has fixed cards so that he will get higher cards. He will win and you will lose.

The expression dealing off the bottom now means cheating in business as well as in cards. And when someone tells you that the cards are stacked aganist you, he is saying you do not have a chance to succeed. 

 

In the poker game, you do not want to let you opponents know if your cards are good or bad.  So having a poker face is important.  A poker face never shows any emotion, never expresses either good or bad feelings. No one can learn by looking at your face if your cards are good or bad.

 

People now use poker face in everyday speech to describe someone who shows no emotion. Some one who has a poker face usually is good at bluffing. Bluffing is trying to trick a person into believing something about you that is not true. In poker, you bluff when you bet heavily on the poor hand. The idea is to make the other players believe you have strong cards and are sure to win.

If they believe you, they are likely to drop out of the game. This means you win the money they have bet. 

 

You can do  a better job of bluffing if you hold your cards close to your vest. You hold your cards close to you so no one can see what you have . In everyday speech, holding your cards close to your vest means not letting others know what you are doing or thinking.  You are  keeping your plans secret.

 

We are not bluffing when we say we hope you have enjoyed today's programme.

A poker face never shows any emotion, never expresses either good or bad feelings. No one can learn by looking at your face if your cards are good or bad. People now use poker face in everyday speech to describe someone who shows no emotion. Someone who has a poker face usually is good at bluffing. Bluffing is trying to trick a person into believeing something about you that is not true. In poker, you bluff when you bet heavily on a poor hand. The idea is to make the other players believe you have strong cards and are sure to win. If they believe you, they are likely to drop out of the game. This means you win the money they have bet. You can do a better job of bluffing if you holds your cards close to your vest. You holds you cards close to you, so no one can see what you have. In everyday speech, holding your cards close to your vest means not letting others know what you are doing or thinking. You are keeping your plans secret. We are not bluffing when we say we hope you have enjoyed today's program. This is Special English Program Words and Their Stories was written by Marilyn Rice Prisdiano. This is Bob Doughty.

第一次做,不知怎么样。 Homework Words and their stories A program in special English by voices of America It is surprising how many expressions that Americans use every day gain from the card game of poker. For example, you hear the expression “A in the hole” used by many people who had never thought of going near a poker table. And “A in the hole” is any arguments planned or think kept hidden until needed. It is used especially when it can turn failure into success. In poker and most card games, the “A” is the highest and the most valuable card. It is often a winning card .In one kind of poker game, the first card to each player is given face down. A player does not show this card to the other players, the other cards are dealt face up. The player bet money each time they receive another card. No one knows until the end of the game whose hidden card is the winner. Often the “A in the hole” wins the game. Smart card players, especially those who play for large amounts of money closely watch the person who deals the cards. They are watching to make sure he is dealing honestly. They want to be sure that he is not dealing off the bottom of the stacking cards. A dealer who is doing that has stacked the deck, he has fixed the cards so that he get higher cards. He will win and you will lose. The expression “dealing off the bottom” now means cheating in business as well as in cards. And when someone tells you that the cards are stacked against you, he is saying you do not have a chance to succeed. In a poker game, you do not want to let your opponents to know if your cards are good or bad. So having a poker face is important. A poker face never shows any emotion, never express even good or bad feelings. No one can learn by looking at your face if your cards are good or bad. People now use “poker face” in everyday speech to describe someone who shows no emotion. Someone who has a poker face usually is good at glaughing. Glaughing is trying to trick a person into believing sth about you that is not true. In poker, you glagh when you bet heavily on a poor hand. The idea is too make the other players believe you have strong cards and are sure to win. If they believe you, they are likely to drop out of the game. This means you win the money they have bet. You can do a better job of glaughing if you hold your cards close to your vest. Hold your cards close to you so that you can see what you have. In everyday speech, holding your cards close to your vest means not letting others know what you are doing or thinking. You are keeping your plans secret.
