Re: Playing Sets on dry flops OOP vs different typ
if the board is dry you should generally be slowplaying, just because you wouldn't raise anything (draws, etc.) on this board. i get very confused when people raise me in today's games, especially on the turn, on dry boards-- but they're usually nice enough to save me from bluff shoving the river.
you have it a bit backwards. betting to induce vs an aggressive player is a little ambitious unless it's specifically an aggro player who likes to raise leads. if not, just let them have the rope to hang themselves on.
playing 88 fast (raising 2.5x c-bet and betting 60% of pot or w/e) on J85r is a little different than playing 66 fast on K62r. the former has many more SD bluff combos for you and SD combos for him that we need to "charge" (kinda, but not really, but kinda). also, playing top set fast in a lot of these spots is a much bigger mistake than playing bottom set fast, because top pair is a hand that traditionally wants to put some money in the pot and we are killing most of his combos of that.
