Draw Down

In lowball, draw more than one card so as to be drawing to the best possible hand, instead of drawing fewer cards (generally one) to a poorer hand; sometimes followed by to and a or the hand. For example, if you have K-8-6-4-2, you could draw one to the 8, or draw down (that is, draw to a 6) by throwing both the king and the 8. A lowball player might say, "When he stood pat, I figured I better draw down," or, "When he stood pat, I figured I better draw down to the hand."
