Over and Out

  1. Noun

    The pocket cards 10-4, either suited or offsuit.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: This hand name originates from confusion around the radio code "10-4," which means "message received." The code "over" indicates that one is done talking and awaiting a reply from the person on the other end, while the phrase "out" refers to ending a transmission without expecting any reply. Though the phrase "over and out" is contradictory, it has been popularized as a generic conclusion to conversation. Due to the phrases "10-4" and "Over and Out" both being widely associated with radio transmissions, they are sometimes thought ot be synonomous. This confusion between the radio terms has extended into poker terminology.

    SAMPLE HAND:

    EXAMPLE: "I had Over and Out and got out of the hand as quickly as I could."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    GAME CATEGORY: Shared Card Games

    SYNONYMS: Broderick Crawford, Convoy, Good Buddy, Roger
