Perfect Perfect

word type: poker slang

  1. To catch the exact two cards needed to beat your opponent's hand. Related to "runner-runner."


In a hold 'em game, where one player holds TT on a board of AT4 and his opponent holds AK, the player with AK needs to catch two perfect cards, or "catch perfect perfect," in order to win.

In this case, two running aces, an ace and a king, or an ace and a four would do the trick and constitute catching "perfect perfect."
