Poker Slang: FTW

When you are on the virtual felt at an online poker site every once in a while you will see in the Player Chat box area “FTW”. What the heck does that mean?
For the longest time I thought it actually meant “What The Flip” but the letters were in the wrong order. So one day I had to ask the stupid question on 2+2 thinking I would get flamed. Actually they were pretty nice and explained the FTW stood for “For The Win” and it means that someone is not playing to just cash but FTW.
