What Is Broadway In Poker?
In poker, players sometimes refer to the highest-ranking straight possible, which consists of an Ace, a King, a Queen, a Jack, and a Ten, as a Broadway or a Broadway straight.
Based on the same principle, Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks, and Tens are often called Broadway cards.
The name originated from the famous Broadway in New York, a road famous for its high-end building and famous theaters.
The term “Broadway” is commonly used in poker in both professional and casual settings.
