Sure. Let's take AK vs A-rag suited. You raise pf and the soooted guy calls.
You flop an ace and two low card of the same suit. This guy is thinking "Man! I got like a bazillion outs!" and calls every thing you throw at em.
If he hits the flush, you think "no big deal, the lucky donk hit his flush draw"...but what about the 12% of the time when he doesn't but hits one of his other outs...namely the three that match the rag. Very vivid memory that lives with you for a while
Same hand. Same villain. Same flop. Different suits. You bet, he folds. Did you hit your king on the turn or river? No one knows nor cares...shuffle, deal, next hand please
Same hand. Same villain. Same flop. But this time villain is short stacked and pushes 7BB PF. You're a healthy stack in BB and folds around to you. You call.
Same flop that misses his suit. You have Aces w/K he has aces with junk. turn & river miss his rag...do you really care what they were? Nope. Was one a King? I dunno, maybe...didn't matter
what I'm getting at is you only see the rest of the hand when either the Ace-rag is leading, has a pile of outs, or one or both are all-in.
...so yes.. ace-rag pays off big...when it hits two pair.
A-big pays off when you hit Top pair (either) or two pair, or nothing and the villain folds to you c-bet
