What should I call this poker hand with a straight?

Hmmm, looks like a good hand... I'm certain I can make a straight out of this! What should I call it? (6 2 8)

• @hexomino Agreed. For a while I thought the 8 card was a dud, so sure was I that the spades are normally aligned on it in two columns of 4. Once I finally realised I had completely misremembered that, the truth jumped out at me! :)

• After seeing the solution, it seems to me that the 3 and the 8 are in the wrong order - am I missing something? Feb 8 at 10:59
• @htmlcoderexe My thought was to put them enough in order that it was clear the answer was intentional but not make it a simple verbatim as this is already a pretty easy question. But your idea might have been better, given how little I mixed it up. I'm actually surprised this question is so popular, I prefer harder questions myself and almost didn't post it... But it was so much fun to construct that I did anyway.

• No, these cards cannot make a straight in poker. They are all of the same suit, so any combination is either a flush or a straight flush. Mixed suits would be needed to make a straight.

You should call this a...

Strait of Magellan (after the famous sea route).

Because...

The positions of the visible spades should be interpreted as Braille. When this is done, the cards spell out MAGELLAN:

Combining this with a pun on the poker term, 'straight', gives us the answer!

• @mountrix That's the enumeration for the answer, like for a crossword clue - it tells you that you're looking for 3 words, of 6, 2 and 8 letters in length :)
