Draw

1) High draw poker. 2) The point during the playing of a hand at which active players discard the cards they don't want and receive new ones. "You must bet or fold before the draw." 3) The receiving of draw cards. "What was the draw?" is a request by a player to find out how many cards each player drew. 4) A particular hand you are trying to make, as, a flush draw, which is four cards to a flush. In addition to draw games, this usage is often heard in games other than draw games. 5) Specifically an unmade hand, usually heard in hold 'em and seven-card stud. "I raised him all in because I knew he was on a draw." That is, I knew that at the moment, his hand did not beat mine, but that he was trying to make a straight or flush (which, presumably, would win if he did make it). 6) Receive cards. 7) Not stand pat, as opposed to doing so. "You're pat? Then I've got to draw."
