A five-card combination that forms two different inside straight draws; a hand including three consecutive cards, the card two ranks higher than the top card of those three, and the card two ranks lower than the bottom card of those three; doubel belly buster.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Example: 10-8-7-6-4 is a double gutshot because a 9 would complete the inside straight 10-9-8-7-6 and a 5 would complete the inside straight 8-7-6-5-4. This hand is only possible in games where there are at least six cards used, as the term is not used to describe such a hand when there are no remaining cards to be drawn. A double gutshot has the same probability of being completed on a given draw as does an open-ended straight draw, and the probability of completing either is twice the probability of completing an inside straight draw.
EXAMPLE: "I had a double gutshot but folded when my opponent raised over the top. I didn't have the pot odds to make the call."
