      Hello, I'm wondering if this call is +ev? or cEV?
      I don't know how to set ICM player cards (can I even do that?) so I'm posting on here. All I can do is the quiz.

      Thanks,

      Hero (BTN/SB): t7992 M = 12.30
      BB: t5508 M = 8.47

      Pre Flop: (t650) Hero is BTN/SB with A:heart: 8:heart:
      Hero raises to t800, BB raises to t5483 all in, Hero calls t4683

      Flop: (t11016) 3:spade: 3:club: 5:spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Turn: (t11016) 2:spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: (t11016) 2:heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)


      Seat 2: Maythany (button) (small blind) showed [A :heart: 8 :heart:] and lost with two pair, Threes and Deuces
      Seat 7: Tibes00 (big blind) showed [7 :spade: 7 :diamond:] and won (11016) with two pair, Sevens and Threes

      Player is 50/40/4.0

      There is no ICM heads up, so it's just a question of pot odds. You need to call 4683 to win 11016. 4683/11016*100=42.51. So you need 43% equity against his range for your call to be profitable. Easy call.
