Four consecutive cards, such as 5-6-7-8, which allows for the player to complete a Straight by receiving a card on either end of his/her current Hand (in this case, either a 4 or a 9 is needed to complete the Straight).
This is a situation that arises when you have 4 cards to making a Straight and those four cards consecutively run. This means that the chances of making your Straight are fairly high in that you can draw a card to either side (high or low) of the run you hold.
A four carded sequence that can be turned into a straight by cards of two different values. For instance, if you have 5-6 as your starting hand and the flop comes 4-7-J then either a 3 (3-4-5-6-7) or an 8 (4-5-6-7-8) will give you a straight.
Four consecutive cards, such as 5-6-7-8, which allows the player to complete his straight with a card on either end (in this case, a 4 or a 9 would complete the straight). Compare this with an Inside Overcards: Cards that are higher than shown on the board. For example, in Hold 'em, if the flop came 4-6-9, and your hand was K-Q, you would be said to hold two overcards; there is a good chance that someone currently holds a Four, Six, or Nine, giving them a pair, but if the Turn or River brings a King or a Queen, your paired overcard might win the hand for you.
Four cards in a row that the next card on either side of it will complete a straight for the player such as, 3,4,5,6, with this hand either a 2 or a 7 will complete the straight. Always be careful when you make the low end of the straight as this is also called the "Dumb" end.
Seeking one of two card values to make a straight. For instance, a player holding 9-8 with a board of 2-7-6 can make a straight with either a ten (6-7-8-9-T) or with a five (5-6-7-8-9). This is also known as an up-and-down straight draw.
