      I like to play with those hands in equilator or pokerstove :) So let's give him a little bit wider min 3bet range: JJ+,AJs+,AQo+.

      Now here's what we get:

      Board: 2h 7s 8s
      Dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 54.598% 54.44% 00.16% 32874 98.00 { JJ+, AJs+, KQs, AJo+ }

      Hand 1: 45.402% 45.24% 00.16% 27320 98.00 { KsJs }

      So 55 times you lose 0.78$ and 45 times you win 0.26+0.15+0.93=1.34$
      45x1.34-55x0.78=17.4$ As you can see this is +EV. Of course when playing you don't have that much time to make calculations. So basically when facing stack size like his it's an easy call.

      Hello bhstaljin,

      First of all, I'd comment on koosMaras calculation. I don't think that he would shove there any that kind of hand and just K high or whatsoever. Therefore we getting fairly lower equity, I'd say ~0,41 but that doesn't mean that we can't Call. For about profitable Call we need like 37%+ equity.

      And also I'd rather use normal calculations and with the zero spot, therefore you get like EV+ = 0,089 and which is pretty smallish. So overall, this is kinda coinflip spot, depending on his shoving range.

      And actually sometimes against his stack I just Check behind here, since we will get paid off anyways when we hit our hand and when he does have a hand and also when he doesn't have a hand here he will likely just fold an we earn few cents. While he may still hit in future streets and pay us off when we hit our flush or either otherwise when he has a hand here, he might plan to Check/Raise.

      Best regards.

      It's fine, that's why we were to discuss the hands. :) Keep going to posts and of course post your own hands. One thing is posting on comments on other hands but you also have to take a look at your own game. Good luck on the tables!
