The Nut Hand in Poker
Knowing what the nut hand is can save you from embarassing and expensive mistakes. Written by Jim Green
So, this article will try to help you learn to spot the real nuts, rather than false-nuts.
The lowest possible nut hand is a set (three of a kind using a pocket pair). If the board has not paired, has no three-flush, and no possible straight, then a pocket pair matching the highest card on the board is the nut hand. Paired and flush boards are easy to spot, straights slightly less so. Basically, if there are three cards within a five rank spread, there is a possible straight. Beyond that, you just have to have to have a quick look and check there's no possible straight.
