Popular Uses

I couldn't even make it out of the first hour of that donkment, what with all the morons going all-in and sucking out on me. -Unknown

LOL Donkaments. -Barry Greenstein, on "High Stakes Poker," February 26, 2007.


The term was born out of Two Plus Two Publishing's poker forums, where many skilled players, and those that believe they are skilled, thumb up their noses at those who do not play the way you are "supposed" to play. Many online poker players believe that anyone can get lucky and win a tournament, even a donkey. Hence, the word "donkament."
