Reverse implied odds

Concept of reverse implied odds is somewhat complicated to pinpoint, but it refers to situations where a player is drawing to a certain hand where, if he gets there, he might actually end up costing himself some money.

For example, drawing to a low flush in face of aggression is classic reverse implied odds situation. If we hit our flush we will want to play it for value but we might actually end up losing money when our opponent (which will happen a certain percentage of time) in fact has a higher flush.
