A hand that contains an A-K. Blind - Forced bets made by the two players sitting directly to the dealer's left, ensuring action on the first round of betting. Blinds are posted before any cards are dealt.
Pocket Ace/King regardless of suit. In Texas Hold'em this is a very strong pre-flop hand and becomes even stronger if one of the two cards hits the board. This would give you top pair with top kicker. A player who holds A - K should be cautious of an opponent with a pocket pair who has potential to hit three of a kind.
