Not to get too abstract here, but if we were to pick one geometric shape to represent a poker game, it feels like a circle would be the top candidate.

A lot of poker terms evoke the idea of a circle, too, as demonstrated by today's installment of "The Weekly PokerNews Quiz." Below are eight examples — see if you can correctly identify the meaning of all eight.
