Default Re: drawing, but not the nuts...


You have 4 outs out of 45 cards, so yeah, 11:1. However, your pot odds are not 7:1, since the pot will likely be split, with 22:45 cards making a low (you don't have one).
So your pot odds are really like 2: or maybe 3:1.

Yup, fold. Anyone with a 4 has you beat, plus you have no shot at low. I only draw to "almost" nuts when I am drawing both ways and have a solid chance at least to catch one end of the pot both ways.

Example of a hand I would draw with is A [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]A [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img]3 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]3 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] , A3 MAY hold up, flush could hit, low boat could hit, 2 could hit giving you nut low.
