re: Poker & Small PP's in SNG's
well the 2/4 rule actually known as the 4/2 rule is referring to straight pot odds
. its the number of outs we have x 4 on the flop and x 2 on the turn that is our equity in the hand.
for set-mining we use implied odds which means how much we get when villain stacks off when we hit our set. In stt's we generally need implied odds of at least 15-1 now this may vary slightly depending on size of our pair, stack sizes, position etc.(like all decisions).
