Nut Advantage

What Does It Mean in Poker?

A player has a nut advantage when s/he has more combinations of super strong hands (two pair or better) in their range than their opponent. For example, if the HiJack raises and the Big Blind calls, and the flop comes A-K-2, the Hijack has the nut advantage, as the Hijack raising range typically includes AA, KK and AK, while the big blind calling range does not.
