      Hey Staselu,

      As your calculation shows you are an equity dog. The reason you might still play aggressively is if you felt you sometimes had fold equity. If you felt you'd never win the pot immediately by raising you should play this hand passively and flat.

      Once you raise you can never fold, you have too much equity. Hand looks fine overall.
