      is my call correct or overplayed ? main reason i snap call was cause there was 2 allins and not just 1

      Hello w4terman,

      Well, it's pretty much flipping anyways. :D We need ~26% equity for just break-even if we include the rake. Without rake it's even more. Although against some ranges like this:

      Board: J:club: 8:club: 9:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG+1  26.18%  19.51%   6.67% { 88, QTs, JTs, 98s, QTo, JTo, 98o }
      BU     34.92%  34.56%   0.36% { Ac9c }
      SB     38.90%  32.22%   6.68% { JJ, 99-88, QTs, 98s, QTo, 98o }

      We do get it. Obviously if we put one of them just on pure strong hand like sets then we still should get the equity. So ain't that big mistake if you even decide to take the line here.

      Best regards.

      Well, unfortunately then not that easy. We would need ~38% equity in this case. Although for example against that kind of range:

      Board: J:club: 8:club: 9:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     39.15%  38.52%   0.64% { Ac9c }
      SB     60.85%  60.21%   0.64% { JJ, 99-88, QTs, 98s, QTo, 98o }

      We ain't gonna do very great, at the best for us with the rake excluded a break-even spot. So pretty much a bigger flip than in the early hand. :) Unless you really expect the opponent to overplay just TP there ever like that. :D

      But if we add some of the hands into his range like JT:

      Board: J:club: 8:club: 9:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     41.90%  41.25%   0.65% { Ac9c }
      SB     58.10%  57.45%   0.65% { JJ, 99-88, QTs, JTs, 98s, QTo, JTo, 98o }

      Then our equity even goes up which gives us better +EV play.
