And some of the things gave me, hmmmm, well a questionmarked face!

Like in Sklanskys, Theory of poker (seventh edition) According to fundamental theorem of poker

This is exactly what he says “With four hearts your only out is another heart. But suppose you have two pair along with the four-flush against what looks like Aces up. Now you have two outs making a flush and a full house. Suppose you have a four-flush, two pairs and an inside straight draw. Now you have 3 outs- that is three ways of beating your opponent with Aces up assuming that player doesn’t fill.”

Please tell me i missunderstood what he said here.. Is he saying that i’ve got only 3 outs to a winning hand instead of the usual way to count, 9 possible in the suit for flush, 4 for the straight and 4 to make a FH= 17 outs in total?

Sklansky you’re confusing me here…. Gaaaaaah!

And btw why aren’t you calling some hands by it’s common name like Drawing hands instead of come-hands??

Play well and have fun
