**I had a 2/1 chance if he didn't have a 7,2 or pair.**

Did I do the right thing?

This isn't the right way to think about it.

First you have to construct a range for him to raise with in this spot.

We shall call this range X (and it will be a percentage)

Then you have to construct a calling range for which he will call your shove.

Lets call this range Y.

Y is inherently less than or equal to X, so we work out what percentage of the time he is calling/folding to a shove by the ratio between X and Y eg raising 75% of hands, calling with 50% of hands means that he will call you 2/3 of the time.

Work out the equity of 72o vs his range using a program like Equilab or an online equity calculator to find out the % chance of winning or losing vs his calling range.

Then we need your stack size, and his raise size for this formula:

(chance that he will fold eg 0.33) x amount you win when he raises then folds +(chance he calls and you win eg 0.66x0.30)x total chip profit in this scenario - (chance he calls and you lose eg. 0.66x0.70) x the amount you lose in this scenario.

If this answer is a positive number, then the move is correct (+EV), but in this case I highly doubt it is.

Hope this helps.
