How Do We Define, "Suckout?"
.25/.50NL two or three weeks ago, and I have a flush draw and a gutshot after the flop. I raised preflop, but villain bets into me post-flop, so I move-in all my chips. He calls and flips TPTK.
Turn makes my flush and villain proceeds to call me a "suckout" for the next 45min. Now, being the educated poker player that I am, I figure I have 12 outs to my hand- 9 flush outs and 3 straight outs (the fourth gutshot out is my suit for the flush). My math at the table said that I was a bit less than 48% to make the draw (accurately, I am 45% to make the draw).
Am I a suckout?
Okay, let's say I make the same play, but without the gutshout outs, yielding only the basic 9 flush outs for a 35% chance to win. Would I be a suckout then?
What if I did it with just the gutshot?
