What Is A Dry Board In Poker

Poker players use the term “dry board” to describe disconnected community cards that offer few or very few drawing opportunities.

In theory, it is considered that dry boards are more favorable to players who are the aggressors before the flop, as it is presumed that these players already have a strong range and don’t need much help from the board.

For this reason, poker theory advises preflop aggressors to use small sizings and to bet with a high frequency on dry boards to exploit their range advantage.

Poker Dry Board Examples:

2s 5d Tc – ten high dry board

As 9d 3h – ace high dry board

Kh 5d 3s – king high dry board
