A straight draw with a specified number of outs; a hand that has four of the cards required to make a straight, where one of X number of cards remaining in the deck will complete the straight.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: The number of cards that can possibly complete the straight will depend upon whether it is an inside straight or an open-ended straight and whether there are any wild cards in the deck. In stud games, the number of possibilities remaining will also be impacted by each opponents' exposed cards.
EXAMPLE: "I had Ah-2h in the pocket. The flop came up 3s-4s-9c. All four of the 5s were remaining in the deck. I might have stayed in the hand hoping to complete the straight, but there was a raise and reraise ahead of me so I decided the pot odds didn't make it worth chasing a four-way straight."
