Chris Marasti-Georg 3, 2 18 I know this has been answered, but I would like to offer a simple definition. Loc Nguyen 3 6. Interesting point of view. Although the last paragraph seems to me to contradict itself, can you explain further?! I mean that I prefer to use the term wet solely to describe the texture property of a board irrespective of opponent ranges.

In those cases I simply say, "The board is wet but misses Villain's range. I understand why you'd do this to avoid difficulty in categorizing flops. I'd say it's better though to consider wetness as "always relative to an opponents range". For instance, if your opponent has no hand at all mucked , in your definition a board still has a texture which obviously can't be true. It's just semantics I suppose but I like to make discussion as easy as possible through consistent use of terminology: Yeah, it's kind of arbitrary semantics, but from a teaching perspective texture comes way before ranges at least a deep understanding , so it might be overload to take what is essentially "How scary is this board?

To my understanding, both flops would be pretty dry but one is more dynamic because of how it hits the ranges that would be most likely getting to the flop. Thanks Polsk and Mick. It's pretty clear now. This is just a concept and not an academic definition.

It seems the concept is more suitable for PLO, isn't it? Originally Posted by PocketGirls. BB code is On. All times are GMT The time now is Dry flop vs Wet flop. Poker Theory General poker theory.
