Is this a poker game term?
Does it have any other extended meaning?

@fansy,
Yes it is a poker term. Your "hand" are the cards you have.

As to other meanings it can obviously have literal meaning. Think of two hand models arguing over who has the "better hand".

@Robert Gentel,

But pitched against a student body flush with easy credit, Internet access, and idle time, gambling’s lure may have the better hand.


Can we take it to mean "to have upper hand" in this context?
