A draw is given, for example, if a player four cards of the road has and it still lacks in order to make it complete ( straight draw ). If he lacks the fifth of four cards of the same suit to form a flush , he has a flush draw.
A poker hand is called drawing dead when none of the cards still to be dealt can contribute to improving the player's hand in such a way that it can win over the opposing hand or hands. He can only achieve success by bluffing and / or by giving up prematurely.
In the draw poker variant , the game phase in which the other players are allowed to swap cards is referred to as draw.
