the importance of "OUTS" Advanced players don't simply just calculate their outs, especially when on a draw. They also ask themselves what hand their opponent has, and whether one of the cards they hope to appear would also give the other player, who is also on a draw, an even better hand. *[personal thinking: i totally...but first we have to make patience till we reach that level and get over the crap in between..if you know what i mean ]
