      In the first Turn Play question

      If I have:

      A :spade: K :spade:

      And without the river card, the board is:

      T :spade: 6 :spade: 4 :club: 2 :diamond:


      HOW MANY OUTS TO THE NUTS DO I HAVE ?

      in the quiz, it says "7, or maybe more" - pls explain. thx :)

      (Why not 9 (all other spades), or only 4 ( 3, 5, J and Q of spades), if you discount all the theoretical straight flushes, that can be completed)

      Is it 7 outs, because 4 or 2 of spades would give someone with a set of tens or sixes a full house, but any straight flush possibilities are just too unlikely to be taken into consideration ?
