the weakness of your hand is completely disguised.

will think you caught a brick. If you pick up a baby

might even backdoor a wheel). If your hand is not
developing nicely by fifth street, don't be afraid
to give it up against what looks like a made low.
By developing nicely I mean picking up a flush draw
and backdoor low, or making trips or Aces up. Unless
the pot gets very large, it probably isn't worth going
past fifth street with Aces only.
