In poker, four out of five cards needed to make a straight if the middle number is the one missing.

Opposite of open-ended (four cards in a row that will make a straight with either low or high card).

A gut-shot straight draw is less likely to suceed because there are only four cards that can help you. Open-ended straight draws have better odds because there are eight cards that can make your straight.
Gut-shot = 2,3,_,5,6 or 9,10,_,Q,K
Open-ended = _,3,4,5,6,_ or _,10,J,Q,K,_

See belly buster.
Straight draw in which only one card will complete your hand, a.k.a. an inside straight draw. For example, you complete a gutshot straight when an eight is dealt to complete a 7-8-9-10-J straight.
Jose Contreras: Ray Lewis made the gutshot straight on the turn, that lucky bastard.
Bruce Lee: If you ever call Ray Lewis a bastard again he will mutilate you and then proceed to eat your children.
