look at the Pot & your stack and likeliness of him calling thus giving you pot odds

Also factor in some FEQ for profit

The pot size is $1.95 and the Hero stack size is $1.40. Assume that one of the vallains call Hero's shove the final pot is ($1.95+$1.40+$1.40)*0.95=

$4.51. So, the minimum equity needed is Amount to call/(Final pot*0.95) that is $1.40/$4.51=0.310->31.0%. Since, the Hero has about 28% equity against a pair that is less than the minimum equity needed (28%<31%). So, in my opinion, Hero should check/fold on the flop. Is my argumentation acceptable? Thanks

The calculation for the needed equity goes like...

Amount to call/(Final pot*0.95)=Needed equity

Amount to call is the money you have left to invest in the pot.

Final pot is the size of the pot after you and your opponent are both all-in.

0.95 is multiplied by final pot in order to take the rake in the calculation.
