Draw (poker)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The hand 5 6 has a straight draw in this situation

A draw ( [dɹɔ] ; English “Zug”, “to draw” ) in poker is an incomplete poker hand , in which one or more cards are usually missing so that it can be completed.


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.
