Automatic Steal When Youre the Only Low Card

Suppose that the up cards are K (the high card required to bring in the bet), J , 7 (your own up card), 1 0, J, and Q. The king brings it in for about one-fourth of the full bet. ( We learned about bring-in bets for Stud i n Chapter 11 on page 260.) Now the j ack folds. Make sure that you now raise i t, completing it to the full opening bet. This wiil probably force everyone behind you to fold. You're hoping to win everyone's ante, and it's very unlikely that anyone wiil call you in this situation. Because no one can call you, you always need to make this raise, even if you have K-K in the hole, i n order t o win the antes.
