word type: poker slang
- A slang term from NYC poker circles for the hole cards 7-4o.
Usage and Insignificance
No one really knows why people call the hand 7-4o "Cambodia" and the suited version "Cambodian Slick." It was supposedly due to the US invasion of Cambodia in 1974, but this historical event actually took place in 1970.
Still, New York poker players often exclaimed "Camboooodia" or declared "Cambodian Slick!" when seeing these hole cards tabled.
