IN DEPTH QUESTIONS ABOUT SET MINING(long)
First off i will tell yall what i consider small pair,middle pair,an high pair.Small pair 22-77 i'm in the pot with these hands 80% of the time to set mine an 20% of the time to steal the blinds in postion.Middle pair 88-jj 85-90% of the time to take down the blinds an limpers preflop an the rest to set mine vs a rocky as hell tag player that i'm sure is ahead pre.High pair qq-aa reason to play these i don't have to say.
I have read on this forum several times that everyone in the pot needs to have at least 10x the amount the raise was for set mining to make a profit in the long run.I just read Harrington On Cash 1 an he says he likes every one to have at least 20x the ammount was preflop.
Question #1 Who is right on this?
I just reviewed an averaged my bb\per hand with small pairs(22-77) average was .276 bb\per hand.
Question #2 is this good,bad,or average?
I've read on here an every where else for that matter that chances of hitting a set or 1/7 (please correct me if i am wrong).Ok so counting the rake into thought here.
Question #3 Once we hit a set to we have to make 10x the ammount preflop every time to show a profit?If not what is the x ammount of the oringinal bet to we have to make to show a profit in the long run.
Ok my next question depends some what on #3 i belive.It has to do with single players,vs muti players in the pot.For the sake of argument that were playing 10nl were on the button everyone folds to the cuttoff he raise 3x blinds we have 33 (i know we could raise here vs a lag but lets just say we are calling).Ok we call right now we are up against one oppent an in postion but whats the odds
that we get paid off here if we hit?I'm not sure but in most random hands i doubt it.He raise 30c we called flop k39 he cbets 40-50c we call are raise is he putting any more money in the pot on average?
Question#4 Should i quit set mining so much vs one player?
