Be prepared to fold if yovar odds of icinning drop
significantly. In Stud, watch for the appearance of
your outs in the up cards. Also, remember that your
actual odds of winning with a draw are based on the
chance of making the draw minus the chance of someone
else making or having a bigger hand.
• Betting or raising on a pot draw is inconsistent
with basic strategy, but as you'll see in the next
chapter, it can be tactically viable.
Implied pot odds can make it correct for you to stay
with a draw if your immediate pot odds don't quite
get you there, but only if (1) the gap is small, (2)
you are drawing to the best hand or close to it, and
(3) you are fairly certain that you are in a position
to make your opponents pay you off if you hit.
