Gutshot Poker Dictionary – Rainbow


Poker has been a part of  the Indian culture since years altogether. Several terms that we use in a poker game are common terms that we used in our everyday lingo but have a different meaning. For example, words like straight draw, river, backdoor, etc. We’re building a bank of our own poker terms and you can check them all out here.

Today, we have got you the term Rainbow and its uses in your favourite card game! The term Rainbow in poker is used in Hold’em or Omaha to refer to a flop containing all different suits on the board, meaning no player’s flush can be completed on the flop or even on the turn card.

The picture represents a Rainbow

In simpler terms, it is a Hold’em flop in a hand of poker where all cards are different suits. For instance, the flop will host three different suits to be considered rainbow — KHeart 10Club 5Spade. For example, the flop comes as QHeart AClub 5Spade then this is called Queen Ace Five rainbow.  This flop does not contain any cards of the same suit as a Heart, Club and Spade have been dealt. 

A rainbow flop usually means there will be less chance of the player hitting a flush and hence it will change the way the hand is being played. 

  • Situation 1: The flop appears KHeart 10Club 5Spade
  • Situation 2: The flop appears KHeart 10Heart 5Heart 

In the first situation, there was no chance of flush while in the second situation the chances are a bit high. Rainbow boards are harder to represent big hands as there are less big hands available when you remove flush possibilities.

The chances of a rainbow flop is quite high compared to most other poker probabilities. If you have suited hand cards that match one of the suits on the flop, you will need to hit two running cards of same suit to make a flush. The chances of hitting that backdoor flush are 4.2%.
