Rolled up strategy for Stud8

This is one thing I've debated about, is it better to jam 3rd and all later streets or trap with a rolled up hand.

Where I've been playing it seems that most people jam with rolled up hands but I find this makes there hand really obvious. For example a person with a J showing rereaises someone with and A showing, pretty much no other hand makes sense there. Although jamming reduces the chances that someone will make a low I sometimes wonder if this misses an opportunity to trap someone in a big pot who is also going high. Opinions?

Usually I think you should tend to jam as you are cool with whatever happens. Shorthanded pot means you will scoop more often and winning half of a big multiway works as well.

You highlighted one obvious possible exception. You should smooth call that and hope it looks like a 3 flush. But sometimes it may be right anyway as good lows will play regardless but you may limit some of marginal ones coming in

Re: Rolled up strategy for Stud8

Jamming is better. Too many times you miss bets fannying around and open the door for someone to catch a big draw and bust you.

If they're gonna get there, charge 'em to do it. And if they're drawing dead, make 'em pay to draw dead!

I know what you're saying about your hand being face up like with JJJ jamming vs an A door. But most people cannot lay them aces down and will be with you to the river.

Make 'em pay, dammit!

I usually play my small rolled-up very fast and my larger more slowly, unless it's a spot where I could just have KK or whatever it is
