The blogger community has united around certain nomenclature. 72 off-suit is known as the hammer because of its awesome (and stealthy) powers. Here is my version – the atomic hammer:

Dealt to DrChako [7c 2s]
*** FLOP *** [7s Js 2h] BAM!!
*** TURN *** [7s Js 2h] [2d] BAM BAM!!
*** RIVER *** [7s Js 2h 2d] [2c] ATOMIC HAMMER, BABY!!
*** SHOW DOWN ***
DrChako: shows [7c 2c] (four of a kind, Deuces)
Of course, that set the stage for my bust out from a live tourney last night. Playing at PJ Pockets in Federal Way, I had AA and raised to 3xBB (it was my second AA of the night - should have folded pre-flop), and got two callers. The flop was KJ3 rainbow. First all in had Q10 and the second all in had K8.
An 8 on the river sent me home.
