re: Poker & what to do with two pair...
One other Thing...
Learning to read the board and set your strategy is very very important.
Even with an amazingly good hand like top set you have to plan your attack.
Say you flop top set like this:
You want to make it extremely hard, and painful for your opponent to justify a call, and punish him if he is chasing a flush or a straight.
On the other hand this situation with middle set:
is one in which you hope your opponent has an ace and you want to make it a little cheaper... because just think... maybe he gets that other ace. Guess where all his chips are going then?
This sort of consideration is applicable to ALL poker situations of course.
