Hooks [hoo ks]
Pocket Jacks; two Jacks in the hole.

I can’t believe your ducks just beat my hooks!

Donk [donk]
Short for “donkey”. A bad poker player.

We love it when Johnny plays, he’s such a donk!

verb phrase (donk off)
To lose your chips by playing a hand poorly.

I just donked off my chips by calling that all-in with one pair when I knew I was beat.
