QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–365

So, going by the number of questions, this blog turns one-year-old! No big celebration planned for the moment, though. However, I do solemnly promise some goodies coming your way over the next one or two months.

Meanwhile, here’s the question of the day.

In many forms of Poker, the card game, there is a starting hand that comprises the King and the Ace, maybe of the same suit, or maybe of different suits. What very specific name is given to this hand, based on the initials of the denominations of the cards, and the observation that such hands ‘look good, but rarely win’?

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!


Four answers, of which three are correct. The hand is indeed called the Anna Kournikova, named after the initials of the cards – Ace and King – and also because it purportedly ‘looks good but rarely wins!


Post your answers here. Wait for them to be moderated, which will take a day or two to be done.
