semi nuts? the nuts are the nuts..nothing else....
Please, everyone "the nuts" is a term used to define the best possible hand at any given time in a hand. There fore AA would be the Pre-flop nuts, and that could change on the flop if something then a pair of Aces hits..aka straights,sets,2 pair, full house, or flushes.
If a hand improves on the turn lets say an Ace high flush hits against your 2 pair then they have the nuts. Now lets say on the river you hit a full boat with your 2 pair...then you would have the nuts since 4 of a kind is impossible to have due to you having one of the paired cards.
Hand seen here:
You: Ks Qc
Villian: Ah 5h
Flop: Kh Qh 2s(The nuts here would be KK)
Turn: 3h(Villian now has the nuts)
River: Qs(The nuts here would be Quad Q's, but that's imposible in this situation)
