Inside Straight

What Does It Mean in Poker?

Also known as gutshot straight, an inside straight draw is a hand that has four non-consecutive cards to a straight, with only one possible card that can complete the straight. For example, if you hold 9♠ 8♠ and the flop comes J♣ Q4 , you have an inside straight draw — a ten and a ten only would give you a straight.
