This is a discussion on $10 NLHE 6-max: Check flop, check turn, overbet shove river within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; 10NL 6-max zoom on PokerStars. Villain is unknown.
Hero (CO): $16.38
Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with T♦ T♥
UTG raises to
River: ($5.45) T♣ (2 players)
UTG bets $7.94 all in, Hero calls $7.94
What do you think about the way I played this hand? I only called preflop to try to set mine (thinking that the villain probably had AA/KK and would never fold postflop) and was surprised to see him check twice then overbet shove the river.

Holy hand histories, Batman!
It that's the range you assign him preflop to make the setmining call, then that's not a profitable proposition, and you should fold.
Add QQ and AK to the range and it's ok. Add a couple of 4-bet bluffs with Ax and you're gold.
Postflop is perfect, imo. It feels like he has QQ/AA and is trapping, but there's going to be bluffs in his range too, or a scared JJ. If it's QQ, so be it.
LOL if it's J9.

I just did the maths and you're right: to purely set-mine on the flop isn't profitable here. I'm calling $1.65 more to win $13.24 (my $2.65 + his $2.65 + his other $7.94), which means I would need to win 12.46% of the time to justify a call, but the probability of flopping a set or better is only 11.8%. So I guess I just have to put some QQ/AK combos in his range and try to play postflop and use position to my advantage, rather than pure set-mining.

That math assumes:
-you never lose with a set
-you always take his whole stack when you hit a set
-you lose no money when you don't make a set, bluff catching with 1 pair.
Obviously none of these are true. Set mining in 4-bet pots is a great way to lose tons of money. This is a standard fold to the 4-bet.

Call pre with 1010 in CO against UTG. As played fold pre to the 4bet.
