For no particular reason other than it feels like there should be a complete set of names. Much like it bothers me that there is "80's 90's Some Other decades until we get to the Twenties again"

Red Aces: :AH::AD: (in a two color deck)
Black Aces: :AC::AS:
Major Aces: :AS::AH:

    Round Aces :Ah:Ac
    Pointy Aces :As:Ad

    I use "round" and "pointy" as mnemonics to help remember suits while playing pairs and off-suit hands.

    well apparently there are some other games then poker people play and names often cross over. In bridge the suits have ranks....it goes Spades Hearts Diamonds clubs....

    with spade and hearts being the major suits (you get more points for tricks in them when you bid them, it only takes bidding 4 spades or hearts to win a game of 100 (they are worth 30 each)

    but diamonds and clubs are minor suits you only get 20 points so you need to bid 5....

    Thus Spades and Heart aces are the Major Aces and Diamonds and clubs are the minor Aces....

    Why the suits rank Spades, hearts, diamonds clubs....probably comes from them be alphabetic....Now why S comes later in the alphabet then C....????

    And of course Every deck of cards tends to make the Ace of Spades a big pretty center Ace...so we all know its the best.

    Also none of the other aces have their own song....
