What does it mean in poker?

Many of these poker terms have their roots in the United States of America where poker is widely played. This has led to some poker terms being coined after cultural or historical figures. This term is an example of that. In poker, the term ‘Barbara Hutton’ is a nickname given to the hand consisting of cards 10 and 5. It was named after her as she was the heiress to the famous five and dime stores. The dime is a ten cent US coin, hence the name.
