      On such flop, we must protect and try to put it all-in on the flop.

      One question... If we call for set value, most of the time, there is flush draw possible (occasionally we hit a set on rainbow not connected flop). What is the best way to stack the villain on flush draw possible flop (usually, after we raise or c/r OOP, he folds).

      About your question:
      When the board is drawy its better to c/r or raise IP. He still might interpret is as a draw, and is not folding TP+.If we just call, even if he doesnt have the draw, the draw cards are action killers and we most likely wont get paid.Same about 3 to straight boards.

      Your bet sizes are fine.
      Answer do your question is:
      depends how aggressively do you play your drawing hands or bluffs on drawy boards.
      I´d likely raise a lot of times, so I would also raise with set and they don´t give me any credit most of the times.
      If you only call with draws, then you should also call with sets.
