Book ( poker )
1) In draw poker (high), the drawing of three cards. "How many cards do you need?" "Gimme a book."
2) "The book" is a mythical set of instructions supposedly containing the poker wisdom of the ages.
A player speaks of "playing by the book," by which he means he is playing a hand the way he thinks it is supposed
to be played; such players usually think "playing by the book" is equivalent to playing tight. Actually, there is no book.
