Definition of Cowboys In all variants of Hold'em, being dealt "Cowboys" means that you are dealt two Kings as your hole cards. K-K is the second strongest starting hand that you can be dealt in Hold'em (only A-A is stronger). Let's look at an example of when the term "Cowboys" might be used in a poker game.
Faro was by far the most popular and prolific game played in Old West saloons, followed by Brag, Three-card-monte, and dice games such as High-low, Chuck-a-luck, and Grand hazard. It was also about this time that gambling began to invite more diversity including Hispanics, blacks, Chinese and women in the games.
When cowboys wanted to have fun, they used what they had: horseshoes, horseshoes, horseshoes. In this cowboy favorite, upturned horseshoes are mounted as hooks on a wooden stand. Each guest attempts to hang their throwing horseshoes onto these hooks.
