Turn a Profit

Don't forget that when you play strict basic strategy the shoe is continuously growing richer and leaner too -- but you still keep playing your hands as though the shoe is the same as it was at the start. The thing to understand about this concept is; whatever the shoe is right now has become the new norm, and things will tend to centralize themselves around that the rest of the way.

Wrap Around Straight Draw
In Omaha, a situation in which your four hole cards consist of three or four closely connected cards. In turn they combine with two flopped cards to create a situation where any of a large number of cards can give you a straight. Depending on the precise configuration, you can have as many as 17 outs to a wrap. For example, with a K-10-8 flop and Q J-10-9 in your hand, you can make a straight with an ace (use your Q J), a queen (use your J-9), a jack (use your Q-9), a nine (use your Q -J) or a seven (use your J-9). There are four aces and four sevens left in this configuration (eight outs), and three queens, jacks, and nines (nine outs, for a total of seventeen). Other "large number of outs" configurations are also called wraps.
