Been there, now get the T-shirt....

"Donkeys" in poker are known for playing completely unpredictably, and sometimes against the odds, making it difficult for opponents to catch a read. This style of playing poker has become so popular that businesses are popping up across the world to cater for it.

One Florida company waxed lyrical on the topic, for which it designs appropriate apparel, saying: "In real life and in poker, donkeys are stubborn. In the realm of poker, though, they refuse to fold bad cards and deliver powerful kicks when they win on the river with any two cards. Somehow or another, the poker donkey will gamble against ridiculous odds and still occasionally hit the miracle card, bringing great frustration to others. Some players have made donkey their style of play, often confounding their opponents.

Even the Internet is reflecting the craze, with one of the biggest websites - Full Tilt Poker - offering a donkey avatar to players. New companies such as DonkeyGear.net are cashing in on the fun with comical T-shirts and baseball caps.

Donkey Gear, which has just launched online shopping for its products, was founded by a group of poker fanatics to provide others with fashionable but fun poker apparel and poker accessories.
