re: Poker & What to do with a set against a posible flush?
For OP, in short, bet every street you can to get max value for your hand. ~3/4 of the pot is a nice number to be betting. In this situation of set vs possible flush draw (key word is 'draw'), you want to bet and have players call with weaker hands or to chase their hand. The only think you're really worried, on a non-straight board, is a set over set situation. And that's just a cooler. If the only thing you really have to worry about is a draw, then you really want to build the pot and get paid off for your hand.
Bet. Bet. Bet. Bet.

Of course there are multiple factors involved so nothing is ever set in stone
This is such bad advice because you lose so much value for you hand by checking. "praying another suit doesn't come out" does not build a pot, nor does checking and hoping to check raise.
-Um...??? I don't know.
-you lose value by not betting each street.
-No guarantee your opponent(s) is going to bet out, so no guaranteed C/R situation
-You give opponent(s) a free card.
At least if you bet out, you're not giving your opponent a free card. If they fold, it's still a good play. They may call, but you're building a pot with a strong hand. Make them pay.
