    Your lack of patience is simply going to put people off responding to your questions.. Please wait more than 45 minutes before boosting your post. When you first posted your question, most Europeans and Americans were in bed.

    If you did a little more thinking on your part, you might have ended up asking the difference between
    "to hold" and "to have", the answer to which I defer back to you.

    Re: hold

    Are you talking about a game of poker, a chess game, pole vaulting or what?

    I suspect you are talking about chess, but your lack of providing context for your questions is something I have asked you to work on as we are not yet mind readers.
