Definition of the term Suited - Poker Dictionary - Meaning and ExampleLet's look at a couple of examples to fully illustrate the proper usage of the term "suited":

Example 1

You are dealt Ah-Kh in the Big Blind. Action folds around to the button, who puts in a standard pre-flop raise. The SB folds, you re-raise and the button folds.

Your A-K in this hand was made even stronger by the fact that it was "suited", which obviously increases the possibility that you will end up with a flush in the hand.

Example 2

You are currently involved in a hand with one other player. The board currently reads 3s-5s-As-Kh-Qh.

Your opponent leads out with a bet and you call. You flip over A-A for a set of Aces, while your opponent flips over 4s-6s. Your opponent started out with 4-6 "suited" and flopped a flush. You flopped a set of Aces and just couldn't get away from the hand.
