Hi,

I raise preflop and get called. I cbet and get raised. I go all in because I believe I have the minimum equity to do so but I am not sure about the minimum equity calculation. I wish to know how to calculate the minimum equity needed to make a call or go broke. Thanks

Hey JHTAN,

I would make a slightly bigger c-bet like 0.60\$ and fold to the raise.

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.

Therefore for this hand the equity is...

1.60/(4.15*0.95)=0.406 -> 40.6%

As you see you are quite far behind the needed equity with just 6 outs for your overcards.

6 out is also the most you would have, you might have less or none, in 3 betting range of villain you probably have AT, KT, TT, 77 or 44 along with maybe QT, JT, 9T
