Set Mining

Holding a pocket pair before the flop, engaging in a pot solely in the hopes of turning the pair into a set.


Under the gun opened for 500 and I called holding {2-Spades}{2-Hearts}. I was really just set mining, hoping to hit a third deuce on the flop. And wouldn't you know it, the flop came {2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{j-Clubs}!
