      This is more or less a simple math problem.

      You have to call 18.43 to win total of 80.20. That means you need ~23% equity to call.

      To make things easier let's assume the worse case scenario where you are always behind to let's say the nut flush.
      You have exactly ~23% equity versus the flush.

      So this should be an instance call once we get shoved on.

      Remember that worse hands can still show up in villains range, although you will see a fair amount of flushes (for example, QJ, AQ with Ah, lower sets, JJ, 33, 66, etc.)

      you can´t fold there top set, since BU can also shove worse hands than yours, so I´m fine b/c turn getting these odds
