Lo que más me gusta de esta mano es la perfecta lectura de Junglen y la agresividad de Antonius para jugar los proyectos. Bien por ambos: el uno por conocer el juego de su rival y adivinar que no lleva jugada hecha (vio con as como carta mayor) y el otro, por apoyarse en un semifarol para llevarse el bote con la opción que salga lo que va buscando, cosa que finalmente ocurrió.

This article refers to poker terminology relating to drawing cards or drawing hands. Go here for an article dealing with various draw poker games.
A poker player is drawing if he has a hand that is incomplete and needs further cards to become valuable. The hand itself is called a draw or drawing hand. For example, in seven-card stud, if four of a player's first five cards are all spades, but the hand is otherwise weak, he is drawing to a flush. In contrast, a made hand already has value and does not necessarily need to draw to win. A made starting hand with no help can lose to an inferior starting hand with a favorable draw. If an opponent has a made hand that will beat the player's draw, then the player is drawing dead; even if he makes his desired hand, he will lose. Not only draws benefit from additional cards; many made hands can be improved by catching an out — and may have to in order to win.

You're more than welcome Peter, and that comment was very kind of you (though my natural pair is actually EN>ES).
Don't think me an expert. I just happened to have a bit of free time on my hands, a feel for the Spanish terms and plenty of web info available in English to bring it all together.
