Explanation of Two-tone

In Hold’em and Omaha players use the following expressions to describe different types of board textures.

Rainbow – Indicates that every card on the flop is of a different suit.
(Can also be used to describe the turn.)

Two-tone – Indicates that two of the cards on the flop are of the same suit. 
(Can also be used to describe the turn.)

Monotone – Indicates that all of the cards on the flop are of the same suit.
(Can also be used to describe the turn.)

Ragged – Opposite of “connected”. Implies there is little to no co-ordination between the cards on the board.  “Rag” is also the term in poker used to describe a low uncoordinated card.

Dry – Similar to ragged. Indicates that there is little in the way of flush or straight connectivity.

Drawy – Indicates that there are a number of possible straight draws of flush draws available on the board. 

Paired – Indicates that there is a pair on the board

Example of Two-Tone used in a sentence -> A two-tone flop texture in Hold’em an Omaha means that there are possible flush draws.

How to Use Two-tone as Part of Your Poker Strategy 

Two-tone textures imply that there are possible flush-draws out there. Protecting made hands is hence more important on two-tone textures than on rainbow textures. We will hence be less likely to slowplay on a two-tone texture when we hold a premium.
