In the context of gambling, a straight is a powerful card combination in poker games. To assemble a straight, a player needs to assemble a five-card sequence of ranks, regardless of their suit (e.g. 9, 10, J, Q, K).
The straight is the sixth-strongest hand in high poker (e.g. Texas Hold’em and Omaha), being ranked above three of a kind and below a regular flush. A player’s true odds of assembling a straight during a hand of poker are 0.76%.
