The name Ainsworth has been given to the starting poker hand of 6,2 irrespective of the suit. In Texas Hold’em, if a player has 6 and 2 as his/her starting hand, then that player has an Ainsworth.

Why Ainsworth?

The starting hand has been named after the famous British poker player Ron Ainsworth. 6,2 is usually a very weak starting hand to have and players generally choose to fold this hand because of the low possibilities of making a good hand on the board. However, the British player not only played this hand but also won a tournament once with a 6,2 as his starting hand. Hence the hand has been named after him.
