The beginnings of the phrase "poker nuts" are unsure although it is thought to have come from old slang meaning "delightful thing, practice or experience". It is really a "delightful thing" naturally, because in Texas hold’em the poker nuts will be the finest achievable hand that you can have at any stage in the game.

If you might have the nuts, you can not be beaten…at that point in the hand. This will be the essential factor that lots of unskilled players fail to take account of, the nuts can move from 1 gambler to another and your hands which was the nuts earlier on can end up being smashed!

The subsequent example need to illustrate the unpredictable nature of the cards in Texas hold’em poker and how your nuts can swiftly turn to pulp!

You’re playing a palm of Hold’em poker and there are 3 players nevertheless in the game at the flop. You acquire dealt 7 of clubs, eight of diamonds; Amy has 5 of spades, five of clubs and Mike’s side is King, 9 of hearts.

The flop is dealt and the cards are nine of hearts, six of hearts and 5 of diamonds. This can be a fantastic flop for you – you have got the poker nuts! At this point you’ve a straight – five, 6, 7, eight, nine – which can not be defeated by any other combination of cards.

Now you determine to "slow play" your hand and attempt to draw a bet from somebody which has a great pair who will like this flop, so you merely check. Amy likes the look of her hands now as she’s flopped 3 5s so she makes a wager which is referred to as by Mike as he now has a pair of 9s with a King kicker. You prefer the way it’s going so you call the bet.

The turn card is Ace of hearts. Mike is now grinning to himself as he has just been able to make the poker nuts with a flush, his two hearts in his hand plus the 3 around the table with Ace King good now give him an unequalled hand. Mike bets as he knows he has got the nuts but he wants to extract the max cash from the table so he maintains his wager low sufficient to receive called. You even now consider you’re winning together with the directly, in reality the Ace has increased that perception as you now think Mike probably has an Ace in his palm and perhaps even two pairs.

He has fallen into your trap! Or so you believe.

The river is dealt and it is the five of hearts. This really is a blow to you as you can find now four hearts on view, so anyone having a heart is defeating you with a flush. Mike is happy using the 5 as he nevertheless feels he’s winning using the top flush, whilst his competitors may possibly also have created a flush and believe they’re winning. Amy needless to say could be the real winner as she has just produced the nuts with 4 five-s, her four of the form can only be defeated by a directly flush or a far better four of a kind. There aren’t adequate connected hearts showing around the table to produce a directly flush and there is not another pair displaying so it’s not possible to produce 4 of the kind.

Amy wins the pot although you and Mike reflect on what must have been.

Both of you held the poker nuts at 1 point in the game but failed to realise that the poker nuts – as well as your fortunes – in Hold em can change totally with one turn of the card.
