"S" Terms


Alternate Term: Suited

  1. Noun

    The trait that identifies a card as belonging to one of four groupings in a deck; spades, clubs, hearts, or diamonds.

    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Suit and rank are the basic traits of every card except for the Jokers, which have neither suit nor rank. Suits are abbreviated as follows: Spades -s, Clubs - c, Hearts - h, Diamonds - d. While some card games assign different values to each suit, suit is not used as a criterion to break a tie in poker. It is only relevant for making a flush, straight flush, or royal flush.

    EXAMPLE: "Both of my pocket cards were the same suit."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

  1. Adjective

    Of the same suit; all spades, all clubs, all hearts, or all diamonds; as opposed to offsuit.


    EXAMPLE: "In the hopes of completing a flush, I tend to see the flop when I have any suited face card and low card combination. I usually fold if there aren't at least two cards of that suit on the flop."

    APPLIES TO: Online and Land-based Venues

    USAGE: Describes cards.
