Unmade Hand
In draw poker (high and low), a potentially winning hand that needs a good draw to become strong. Without a favorable draw, the hand is a probable loser.

In high, three cards to a straight flush plus the joker (and some other unrelated card that will be discarded on the draw) is a good unmade hand.
