Your poker buddies tease you. Your tablemates berate you. You are, at least according to them, the epitome of a donkey. But today, the joke is on your so-called pals. Now, playing like a donkey can net you an entry into one of Absolute Poker room's big tournaments. Intrigued? Discover Top 5 Donkey list on the Absolute Poker website and then tell AP your worst donkey move. If it's their favorite, you can rub this win in their non-donkey faces.

Poker players love to find names for inexperienced players and plays. The one that has stood the test of time is donkey. We've all been called one. Sometimes it's because we've made a stupid move. Other times, the poker slur is uttered out of frustration after a devastating loss.

Absolute Poker does not like to make judgments based on different styles of playing poker. But that didn't stop them from putting together a "Top 5 Signs You Could Be a Donkey" list.

Top 5 Signs You Could Be a Donkey:
1. You think runner-runner is a good draw.
2. You raise with A2 in early position, because it's suited
3. You think only losing $100 is a "good night".
4. You think 2 hearts in your hand and one on the flop applies to implied odds
5. You think a bad beat is when your 97 hits top pair on the board and then you lose to a turned Ace when the other player had AK.

Like we said, we aren't here to judge. But Absulute Poker is giving away tournament entries to players who submit the best ideas. Take a minute, think of your own best donkey play, or one played against you, and send it to The winning submission will receive an entry into an upcoming big guaranteed tournament at Absolute Poker (with $150k, $100k or $75k prize pool).
