Gut Shot

Gut Shot

A hand where you have 4 of the 5 cards needed to make a straight, but your 4 cards are not "connected" or in sequential order, so you need a single card in the middle of your straight to complete the straight. This type of hand is also known as an "inside straight draw" or a "belly-buster straight draw".

Example: You are holding 5 6, and the board shows 7, 9, 10. At that moment, you have a gut shot, only the 8 will make your straight.
