      On pure equity of his limping range UTG v A4o i make it this using equilab. I realise it changes with the donk.

      If you look at the graph of my last 120 All Ins (up until this point it's been pretty even) you'll realise why i need to get this resolved ! As i've moved from FL to NL in the last couple of months i really need to understand what i'm doing wrong. The top line is my All In EV by the way.

      As you can imagine this is crippling my BR.

      Thanks in advance.

      Your ev line is in the red so even though you are running under ev you need to improve your game.

      In the hand posted I would simply call on the flop or stick in a small raise if you're concerned about draws. I don't think much worse will call your shove here: mostly AK trips, maybe flush draws.

      Hello puccini1,

      Not sure if that guy will even have AK in his range. But you definitely shouldn't be shoving there, make a normal raise and try to invite him make mistakes. Very small part of his range will continue vs your sizing.

      About your graph, what can I say... sample size. ;)

      Best Regards.
