What I mean is that often there are those on here who say "I'm getting ~12x, whatever, good enough" and setmine. I'm saying that if we're often turning those setmining hands into spewy call a flop / see what happens, then ~12x ain't even remotely close to what we need to profitably setmine longterm.
I realize here than we're not really setmining, although I am cuz I think it's going to cost us too much money to find out if our meh pair is best in this case.
