      do you know how to calculate your equity?

      what do you think, does villian raise/push in this position?

      He raises 88+,AT,KQ. He shoves qq+,ak maybe aq,tt+ so easy call. I don't know why should we go all-in only with qq+/ak in this spot. Even with 40bb we have good odds with 99+ against qq+/ak shoving range.

      If you calculate your needed equity you'll see there's quite a difference between 30 and 40 BB stack. Then play with equilator and check your equity with your hands and you'll see the charts are pretty much correct if you want to be on +EV side.

      Furthermore charts count with 3BB openraises meaning if you 3-bet 3BB openraise you get worse odds to go broke than you did in this hand where villain openraised to 4BBs. So, you have to calculate your needed equity for more scenarios(differently sized openraises, different stack sizes, cold callers etc.) to learn when and with which hands you can go broke because charts are just a general guideline.

      As for the posted hand, you're right, JJ is an easy call here.
