Hi all,

I'm currently taking the SNG course and on page:
http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/art...-Basics?page=2
I see the following statement...

Strong Made Hand:
Top pair with top kicker, overpair, two pair, trips, straight, flush,
full house, quads, straight flush, royal flush
Example: (Ac-Kh) on a board (Kd-10h-4s)


I do not understand what it is they try to say.
Can anybody clear this up for me?

Thanx a lot.

Grtz Nico

All these:

Top pair with top kicker, overpair, two pair, trips, straight, flush,
full house, quads, straight flush, royal flush
Example: (Ac-Kh) on a board (Kd-10h-4s)

Are classed as strong made hands.

This hand:

Example: (Ac-Kh) on a board (7d-10h-4s)

is a drawing hand.

it's simply terminology,"a strong made hand" and then a definition for that terminology.

A made hand is one you have Like A pair of Kings in the example given.

drawing hand is one you hope to make with next cards that come up.
