Combo Draw

A “combo draw” (or “combination draw”) refers to having both straight and flush draws at once. For example, in a hold’em hand if a player holds {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} and the flop comes {J-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, that player would have both an open-ended straight draw and a flush draw.

In some cases, having a “combo draw” on the flop can give a player a better chance of winning than having a made hand, such as in the above example where {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} will win by showdown more than 56% of the time versus {K-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}’s almost 44%.
