Goto next slide#5: Ace in the Hole

The Definition:

ace in the hole

1 : an ace dealt face down to a player (as in stud poker) and not exposed until the showdown

2 : an effective and decisive argument or resource held in reserve

Editor's Note:

"Ace in the hole is a phrase that's both familiar and vague – but its meaning becomes clear when you read the first definition (the one that talks about actual playing cards) along with the second more metaphorical one."
