“Shark” is a term that originated from poker. A shark is a term used to describe a player with a tight- aggressive play style. This means that they fold the majority of their hands, but when they do play a hand, they usually make big, well placed bets. Most sharks are very good players.
Just don’t play at Table 3. That old guy with the brown hair is a shark. You’re gonna lose your money.
“Dyno” is a term that originated from rock climbing. A “dyno” describes a move in which a rock climber vertically jumps or propels themselves from one rock hold to another. It is always viewed as an impressive feat for any climber.

A person would yell out the term “Kobe!” when taking a shot in basketball or when throwing anything into some sort of basket. It is a reference to the star basketball player Kobe Bryant.

He shoots! He scores! KOBE!!!

“Fish” is a term that originated from poker. The term “fish” describes a player who is new to the game and gets taken advantage of by the other players.

Everybody loves to have a fish at their table.
That was the most profitable game ever. That fish was basically handing me his chips!
