word type: poker slang
- When a poker player boasts of his or her positive accomplishments in some sort of public forum.
In the online message board universe, there really are only two types of posts - brags and beats. A brag is when something happens that ends in a great result for the boaster who wanted to show off his or her good fortune. These posts are often found in the BBV section of such websites.
Often brags come from poker noobs who boast of very modest accomplishments. Such a post would read like:
zOMG biggest tourney win ever! Biggest tourney field win in a while at least lol ... $0.10+RB took down 2nd at the FT!!! Ship the +$6!
