      Howdy,

      Calling pre for setmining is fine, because you have at least two (CO may call aswell) fullstacked players in a pot and you have position on one of them.

      On flop there's nothing much to do, but play for stacks. They may have draws, overpairs, top pair and a lot of combos that you are ahead of. Set over set is just a cooler and don't get influenced by results in this situation.

      That's why it is a good reason not to post results, so we can judge hands without knowing the results, but thinking about situation in general. Reads/stats about players help a lot and remember that poker is tricky game and even if you made correct decision there's no guarantee that will lead to results you wanted or predicted at first. Of course don't trick yourself and don't use it as excuse for bad decisions overall, but that's why it's always useful to take a look on tricky hands or hands you had problems making decisions about and think about/review them after the game (this includes posting them in Hand Evaluation forums ofc).

      Good luck!
