Dominated

  1. Adjective

    That are not paired, contain one card that an opponent also holds, and of which the second card is lower than the opponent's second pocket card.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: A hand that is dominated has significant chances against winning. Example: Player A has A-K in the pocket. Player B has A-Q in the pocket. Player B's hand is dominated because it shares an Ace with Player A and the second card, a Queen, is lower than Player A's second card, a King. In order to win the hand, Player B would need to make a flush, make a straight, or hit a Queen without Player A hitting a King.

    EXAMPLE: "I was dominated but sucked out on the river. It was incredible luck."
