re: Poker & Jam the pot?
The idea behind jamming the pot is that with 2 cards to come and an open-ended straight / flush draw, you're more than 50% to make a straight or flush... in Hold'em at least. In stud of course you've seen more of the cards, but there have only been 2 other diamonds seen here, so the odds
are probably still about right.
In hold'em you can usually assume your straight or flush is going to win... however in Stud, it's a bit more complicated. If he has trip 8s or maybe 2 pair, I'd have to discount this a bit for the chance he will make a full house. I'd have thought in Stud the danger is probably greater, because if you make your hand in Hold'em, another of the same suit or one of your straight cards will not be pairing the board. So I'm asking the question because I'm not sure if I should play this situation the same as I would if I flopped a straight / flush draw in Hold'em.
