"The Silkin" is a poker hand named after a particular New Zealand poker player. It describes the hole cards 4 and 2 in a game of Texas Hold'em Poker.

Traditionally known as a particularly bad hand and often mucked pre flop, this player coined the term "The Silkin" by playing 4 - 2 very aggressively and taking pleasure in revealing a bluff and mocking other players when folding a better hand to "The Silkin".
I've got the Silkin. I'm all in.
