What is Texture in Poker?

Texture is a way of describing the community cards and their relation to one another, such as with matching suits or connected ranks.

A wet board texture is one where many flush and straight draws are possible, such as 9♣ T♣ J♣ and 543♣. A dry board texture contains very few or no drawing possibilities, like A9♠ 2♣ and K4♣ 4.
