Not everyone can bet the most valuable

Legends, traditions and many set expressions of modern poker came to a present game from the ancient times when poker had been just created. An interesting example of this is the origin of the term "nuts".

Nowadays the term "nuts" is known to be the best hands variation among all possible in a certain situation. For the first time the word appeared in the Wild West. The carriage and horses were the most valuable for a player then. If the player made a huge bet those days he wasn’t taken on trust. Organizers or rivals of the game demanded to unscrew the nuts of carriage wheels and leave them on the table or any other place. Thus the player lost an opportunity to leave if he would lose the further game. Having disassembled the carriage the player left the most valuable thing as a pledge, so he had the best hand of the game. Here is how the popular term "nuts" appeared.

Over the years the meaning of the word "huts" had been changed. People started to call a person who prefers to play only strong hands in such a way. It is a positive characteristic of a participant of poker competitions which many people seek for. On the other hand, there is also a term "calling station". It is usually applied to those who play passively, don’t raise the rates and are adherents of careful actions.
