In the last poker chapter, we talked about what kind of shape you would be in if you flopped hands like three of a kind, two pair, etc. What we’ll do now is step you through what you’re up against if some of the “danger” from a danger flop is realized!

Three of a Kind in Danger
You’ll recall from last week’s episode that you held 9♣9♠, and you got the flop shown here:
You’re starting strong, but how will you finish?
Looking good, but there are lots of ways to become an underdog in a hurry. Worst-case scenario first: If the turn brings in the 7♦ or the Q♦, you are now in a lot of trouble. Table 10.3 shows what kind of shape you’re in if you need to make a full house against a flush.
Hold ’Em Hand Results
|Hand||Percentage of Money Won|
|Flop (8♦-9♦-T♥)||Turn (7♦)|
The straight is now drawing dead. The good news for you is that any Seven, Eight, Nine, or Ten gives you a winning full house. This totals nine outs, a 4.1:1 shot (it would be 10 outs, but the J♠ is dead). The odds are the same against a made straight, as only a full house wins you the pot. Check and call.
