Homework Now, words and the storys. A programme in Specail English by the voice of America. It is surprising how many expressions that the Americans use every day came from the card game of poker.For exmaple, you hear the expression "Ace in the hole" used by many people who will never think of going near poker table.And "Aces in the hole" is any arguments plan or think came hints until needed.It is used especially when it can turn fair year 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 games, 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 delted face up. The players 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 especailly those who play for a large amount of money closely watch the person who deals the card.They are watching to make sure he is dealing honestly.They want to be sure that he is not dealing of the bottom of the desk of the card. A dealer who is doing that has "stack the deck". He has fixed the card so that he will get higher cards. He will will 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 card are stack against you,he is saying you do not have the chance to succeed. In the poker game, you do not want to let your bonus know if your cards are good or bad.So having a poker face is important.A poker face never shows any emotions. never express 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 emotions. Someone who has a poker face usulaly is good at laughing. Laughing is trying to treat a person into believing something about you that is now true. In poker, you blof when you bet heavily on poor hand. The idea is to make the other players belive you have strong cards and are sure to win.IF they belive you, they're likely to drop out of the game.This means you win the money they have bet.You can do a better job of laughing if you hold your cards closely 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 laughing when we say we hope you have enjoyed today's programme.
