9-0-0. You now have the best high hand with your ace-high lush and also the best l ow hand. At this point it's tempting to just call someone else's bet if he bets into you in order to trap other players into calling you down. But i f you call j ust one bet, someone may call with two pair or a set and you may end up l os-ing half of t he pot i f t he board pairs. Think about it: on fourth street you have t he whole pot won! ( OK, s omeone else may have your low hand tied.) Why wouldn't you want to protect your high hand by raising the pot at this point?
