, a made hand
is one that does not need improvement to win, in contrast to a drawing
hand. For example in Draw poker
, if you have two pair, and your opponent is drawing for a straight or flush, you are said to have a made hand because even though you will be drawing a card just as he will, you can win even if you don't draw a card that improves your hand, while he cannot win unless he improves.
