Lying in the Bushes ( poker )

The place where sneaky poker players lie in wait, usually accompanied by powerhouse hands
they have sandbagged, or otherwise slow-played, to trap unwary aggressive players; often part of
the phrase waiting in the weeds or lying in the weeds. For example, in a high draw game, you raised
before the draw with three aces. Among the several callers, the first man took three cards and passed
after the draw. Everyone else passed. You did not improve your hand, but three aces is worth a bet after
the draw, so you bet. The three-card draw now raises. The others fold. You call. He shows his full house.
He was waiting in the weeds. Also, bushes, as part of the terms in the bushes, and woods, as part
of the terms in the woods and waiting in the woods.
