playing mid-low pocket pairs with 6 people left in SnG
What are some good ways to play these in the middle/later stages of a SnG? What I do sometimes is fire out a preflop raise in early position or limp in in late position and hope to catch a set. The problem is, there are times when a couple overs fall, and then I don't know what to do.
For example, say I'm dealt 6 6 in EP and raise to 3-4x the BB. Get 2 callers, flop comes 3 7 9. With this kind of flop, should I bet out or check/fold or check/call? Obviously there are alot of factors to consider such as stack size, stack size of opponents, opponents play style...but in general I have trouble giving my opponents credit for having a 9 or a 7 unless they are playing them with an Ace. Usually I put them on overcards and think my hand may be the best. What do you all think?
