now words and thier stories,a program in special english by the voice of american it's suprising how many expressions that americans use every day gained from the card game of poker.for example,u hear the expression,ace in the hole used by many people who never think of going near a poker table.and ace in the hole is any argument,plan or thing kept hidden until needed.it's uesd specially when it came turn failure into success. in poker and most card games,the ace is the highest and most valuable card,it's often a winning card. in one kind of poker game,the first to each player is given face down,a player does not show this card to the other plays.the other cards r doubt face up,the play 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 ace in the hole wins the game. small card players,especially those who play for large amounts of money,closely watch the person who deals the cards.they r watching to make sure he is dealing honestly.they want to be sure that he is not dealing of the bottom of the stack of cards.a dealer who is doing that has stacked the deck.he has fix the cards so that he can get higher cards.he will win and u will lose. the expression dealing of the bottom now means cheating in business as well as in cards.and when someone tells u that the cards r stacked against u,he is saying u do not have a chance to succeed. in a pocker game,u do not want to let ur oppents know if ur cards r gd or bad,so having a pocker face is important.a poker face never shows any emotions,never expresses either gd or bad feelings.no one can learn by looking at ur face if ur cards r gd or bad. people now use poker face in every speech to describe someone who shows no emotions.some one who has a poker face usually is gd at bluffing.bltffing is trying to trick a person into believing sth about u that is not true.in poker,u bluff when u bad heavily on having a poor hand.,the idea is to make other players to believe u have strong cards,and r sure to win.if they believe u,they r likely to drop out of the game.this means u win the money they have bet.u can do a better job of bluffing if u hold ur cards close to ur vast,u hold ur cards close to u so no one can see what u have. in everyday speech,holding ur cards close to ur vast means not letting other know what u r doing or thinking,u r keeping ur friends' scret.we r not bluffing when we say we hope u have enjoyed today's program.
