Sklansky On Poker

When deciding whether to play a marginal hand for at least one more card in seven-card stud or hold’em, the good player’s final decision may hinge on whether he has “extra outs.” By extra outs I mean a small extra possibility of coming up with the best hand other than through the obvious route. For instance, a three-flush on fifth street in seven-card stud is almost never worth playing ju5t on its own value. However, if you add this three-flush to a small pair, the extra 5 percent chance of making a flush combined with your chances of helping your pair may very well make it worth seeing sixth street.

Strangely enough, it seems to me that only very good or very bad players correctly value the strength of these extra outs. I understand this. The conscientious, good but not great player doesn’t want to base his hope on a 20-to-1 shot when he is only getting 5-to-1 pot odds. Only a sucker does that. That’s true of course. It frequently occurs, however, that this extra 20-to-1 chance, when added to your more obvious chances, can make an otherwise unplayable hand playable. It has a greater effect than you might think.
