Making a Set on a Scary Flop
I am hoping to discuss postflop play after making a set, particularly on a flop with connected cards &/or 2 suits.
I have noticed that most pros play this situation faster than I do, and I am wondering if I am taking abnormally high risk.
I have typically been inclined to allow opponents to draw against me when I flop a set. After messing around with the hand evaluator on Poker Academy Pro software, (like 2 years ago)...
...I came to the conclusion that drawing to a boat from a set had better event odds
than a flush draw or straight draw. Also that the draw can take outs away from a flush draw and recoups some of it's mathematical value after missing on the turn (another board card to pair up)
Has anyone run those numbers? Mind sharing?
Also wondering how some of you play a flopped set (from a PP). I love to check-call from OOP and almost never raise a bet on the flop even with a flop that could be loaded with potential draws. Should I defend a flopped set more aggressively?
It seems the only time I play it fast is when I see a 3 card straight combination or 3 to a flush, in which case I have to let go when facing a big reraise.
What do you guys think??
