when you're set mining, but flop an open ender...
Ok. this is not a specific hand, but a general situation that comes up frequently enough that I want to think about a strategy for optimizing this opportunity.
It's a tournament and you've made a decision to set mine with something like 66. you've called a small standard raise in a multiway pot and stacks are deep.
You told yourself preflop that you were just set mining and if you didn't flop a set, you'd quietly go away on the flop.
But then the flop comes out something like this:
either way, you have a pair and an open ender.
I know there are a lot of variables including what pot odds
you are being given etc.
But in general, how should we think about playing these types of hands?
It seems to me that if set mining conditions were good, then expressed odds and implied odds might also be there for straight draws. But also, a 4 card straight is less likely to get paid off. And if you hit any of your 2 "set" outs there is now a 4 card straight on the board, so you'll be forced to pot control somewhat.
