backdoor draw is typically seen in Hold’em, for example, and is a draw on the Flop that needs outs on both the Turn and the River to be successful. Another, more popular term for this is ‘runner-runner’ draw, which highlights the problem compared with a conventional draw such as a flush draw, for instance, which requires us to hit just once on either the Turn or the River.

However, backdoor draws do have a positive characteristic in that they are well disguised, so when we do hit we are more likely to get paid off, thus increasing the implied odds.
