But to say you won't bet your AA on Q84 rainbow flop because you didn't make a set would be horrible in pretty much any case.
If you're truly playing simply by the above statement, then we've identified a huge hole in your game that we can begin working to close. I'd suggest posting some hand histories of these situations in hand analysis to get input on the variations.
