Reads and odds. (IMHO, the shortstack didn't jam, he just overcalled, giving me better odds.) I know that the shortstack is a fish who is willing to gamble and I think the other player knew the same thing so he wanted to isolate the fish with his raise.


As I have the nut straight draw on a rainbow flop and J5 two-paired I only fear J8 and 88 on the flop (I block fives so 55 is very unlikely) and I block the jacks, making potential bonus draws for higher jack-based two-pairs (turned/rivered JK/JA) less likely.

On the other hand, maybe the other players thought I was a fish so they were happy to put their chips in once they saw I raised the flop
