For example, you could be dealt such a hand: 4♦ 6♥️
After which, the flop could produce the following community cards: 8♦ K♣️ Q♠️
This situation is a backdoor draw, because you can only get a good hand if the turn and the river produce a 5 and a 7 (a straight) or two 4s or 6s (three of a kind). If any other cards appear, you’re likely to lose
Because you can only get a combination good after a favorable turn and river, this is considered to be a bad position. If you‘re a beginner, it’s best to fold in such a situation.
