Connectors and Gapped Cards in Texas Hold’em Poker

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Cards which are adjacent to each other are known as connectors. They can either be suited or unsuited. These are usually hands such as 9-8, J-T or K-Q. Connectors are widely used in forming ‘straights’. All the suited connectors can make flushes, straights or straight flushes. Gapped cards are those that have one or more gaps between them. These are cards such as A-8, J-9 or Q-T. If the gap is smaller, it is easier to make a straight. Just like the connectors, the suited cards have far more potential amongst the suited cards.
