Sometimes when one person is describing a hand to another, the conversation will go something like: A: The flop came down ace – 3 – jack, two diamonds B: Which cards were diamonds? A: Why's it matter? The reason it matters is that suited aces (like Ad 8d) are much more playable than any other suited cards, especially from early or middle position. That means if the flop includes the flush ace (in this case, the ace of diamonds), the odds that the opponent is drawing to a flush go down significantly.
*In a free multiplayer poker game where there's no money on the line, this tip will be much less useful, since there will be plenty of people playing 7d 4d from any position.
