If a player goes all-in preflop with 100bb, and 10% rake go to the poker room, what equity will I need to call with 100 bb?

Is it right that 20 bb will be service fee? The rake cap at party lies at .50\$, so in NL2 rake won't be affected by that if both players are only fullstacked ((2*2\$)*10% = 0.4\$). So, in order to win money, what equity do I need?

mhh no answers. Is the question so stupid that noone wants to answer, or is it completely irrelevant for a different reason which i do not get?

I came to the result of 56%, whenever the cap is not reached, because we are going to play for 180 bb, and when we win with 56% we get in 100 hands:

56 * 80bb = +4480
44 * -100bb = -4400

Is this kind of calculation correct? It would mean that we can only call a preflop push when we are ahead by 56%. When we put money into the pot (i.e. our bet gets raised) we can obv. do with less equity, and when we play for more than 250 bb (on NL2, party poker) the needed equity also decreases because we reach the cap of 50% rake.

EV = Equity * (Win + Investment) - Investment
"Win" stands for any money that you can win, "Investment" is the amount that you have to pay to get a chance to win.
