History of the Term

Who knew that someone besides Vince Van Patten could coin cringe-worthy nicknames for poker hands? Well, Bill Edler proved his ability to do just that when, upon witnessing the hand T8o beat A9s at the 2009 WPT Celebrity Invitational, he stated the hand was played "ten-eight-ciously."
