Playability

The playability of a hand is a broad measure of how much a hand lends itself to being played. The more complext the arrangement of cards, the harder it is to evaluate the strength of one's own hand and the blurrier the situation, the less the playability. A hand with a high playability is one for which one can say with relative ease where one stands. Very playable hands also do not tend to be ones for which it is easy to avoid being dominated or coming in second.
