Gutshot Poker Dictionary – Straight Run

by Manthra Koliyer Posted on 08 Sep, 2020

Not your normal straight! Here we come with a new word to help you amp up your Poker vocabulary. In general terms, a straight run means a direct attempt at anything without obstacles. 

In poker, A straight hand or straight run refers to five consecutive cards of any suit. By consecutive we mean, five cards of sequential rank, not all of the same suit, such as 7 6 5 4 3.  In terms of hand rankings in traditional Texas Hold’em Poker, a straight is between a flush and three of a kind, with flush being the best of the three. 


Some probabilities under high-card rules 

An Ace-high straight – A K Q J 10

A five-high straight – 5 4 3 2 A

An Ace-high hand – Q K A 2 3♦ (but it cannot rank both high and low simultaneously )

Under deuce-to-seven low rules 

An ace-high hand – 5 4 3 2 A♦ (Ace ranks high)

Under Ace-to-six low rules

King-high hand – A K Q J 10♠ (Ace always ranks low)

Under Ace-to-five low rules

Ten-high hand – 10 9 8 7 6♦ (straights are not possible)

Every straight is ranked according to its highest-ranking card. For example, J 10 9 8 710 9 8 7 6♠ > 6 5 4 3 2. Straight hands that differ only by suit, such as 9 8 7 6 5 and 9 8 7 6 5, are of equal rank. There are two types of straights, namely Broadway straight and Baby straight.  

  • A Broadway straight is An ace-high straight, such as A K Q J 10
  • A Baby straight also known as a bicycle or wheel, which is a five-high straight in ace-t0-five low such as 5 4 3 2 A
