Explanation of Deuce

Exact origin of the term “deuce” used to describe a “Two” is unclear, although it seems to predate the 12th century AD. General consensus is that was taken from the German language after being taken from the French language before that. In traditional German card games the “Deuce” was the highest ranked card, much like the “Ace” in our modern decks.

Example of Deuce used in a sentence -> We glanced down at our preflop cards and saw the pocket Deuces.
