Just wanted to clear that one up!
set mining isnt simply about stack sizes.
If villian has an extremely tight 3bet range then yes you could consider set mining if you can get a min of 15-20:1
As villians 3bet range widens your implied odds drop because if he starts 3betting AJ and hits his ace he realises that he wont always have the best hand and so will play postflop more cautiously.
On top of that sets make more money IP than OOP.. so I wouldnt recommend set mining OOP in 3bet pots unless your opponent can never lay down AA and stacks are huge.
Set mining is a bit overrated.
bad players love to do it and will call any bet with a PP, but your results should show you make far more with sets IP than OOP.
