Poker Dictionary – One-Way Straight


The learning never stops in poker, so today we’re back with another poker term that players should be aware of. And that term is the ‘One Way Straight.’ Like all sports and games, this mind sport too has terms that are often used by its players to better describe moves or understand the game. Let’s take a look at what the one-way straight in poker means.

What is a straight?

To get started, let’s first understand what a straight in poker means. A straight is a hand in poker which requires five consecutive cards in numerical order. In this case the suit of the cards does not matter. For example, to get a straight hand in poker, one needs to have a card sequence like an 8,7,6,5,4 or 9,10, J, Q, K. The straight is the sixth-highest card rank in poker and is usually considered a good enough hand to play.

What does One-Way Straight mean in poker?

There are many ways that one can score a straight in poker. The term one-way straight or one-end means that a straight is open only from one end. For example, when you get cards like Ace, King, Queen, and Jack, the only way that you can form a straight with these cards is if you have a 10. Usually, if you get cards like 5,6,7,8 on the table then you can complete it with a 6 or a 9. However, in the case of A, K, Q, J there is only one way to complete the straight sequence is by either having a 10. Therefore the term, ‘one-way straight’ literally means there is only one way to complete the straight.
