In a community card game, the lowest possible straight that can be made; a straight in which the three highest cards in the sequence are community cards and the two lowest are pocket cards, or in which the four highest cards in the sequence are community cards and the lowest card is a pocket card.
EXAMPLE: "I was holding 7h-8h in the pocket. The flop came up 9d-As-10h, and the turn was the Jc. Since the Jack completed my straight, I made a huge raise. My opponent called and we both went all-in when the river card was the Ad. My opponent had K-Q offsuit in the pocket and ended up winning the hand with the King-high straight against my Jack-high straight. After a number of losses like that, I've started playing less aggressively when I'm holding the ignorant end of the straight."
