200Subscriber7+2.5 = 9.5

Indifference seems the answer

6,109Administrator, LeadProI dont think the math is that simple. At 60% of 2.5bbs you would want to take the fold and its not close, imo.

The value of the fold is + 2.5BBs..

The value of a call is 9.5bbs (opponents $$ and ante, not your own) x .6 = 5.7bbs. But then you must subtract the equilibrium of 50% on 9.5bbs which is 4.25. So 5.7-4.25 = 1.45bbs. By my calculations you would need to be at least a 71% favorite (.71x9.5= 6.75, then - 4.25= 2.5)) to be indifferent. Factor in the fact that you get knocked out if you lose, you can even make a case for 75% or more before you want a call.

The reason why that first math doesnt -- lets say the equity is less but the total pot is more.. like say 30% equity but a 50bb shove. We can't just say .3 x 50 = +15bbs.

123MemberThanks so much for the math work, amazing. When calculating these situations, is it always - equilibrium of 50%? Say for the example you gave where we have 30% of 50bb shove. Also isn’t opponents $$ and ante = 8.5BB and not 9.5bb since he posted bb so it takes him 6 to call + 2.5 dead?

@J4fun thanks also for the effort and time

Results: in game I decided I would rather take the dead money and told the villian to fold, which he did.

6,109Administrator, LeadProIm not exactly sure what you are asking.. But if you were to shove 50 bbs and were called and had 30% equity.. you lose 10bbs (result is 15bbs) on the shove as 25bbs is the break even point at 50%. Bart

25-15 = 10.

If you had 50% equity the result would be neutral.

25-25=0.

If you had 40% equity the result would be -5bbs or 25-20=5. B
