      I think it was a good bet, since equity was positive to you:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 33.283 % 16.061 % 34.444 % 49.495 % JdTs
      Player 2: 66.717 % 49.495 % 34.444 % 16.061 % QhJc

      Can someone explain this in more detail?! I'm trying to use PS Equilator to do some hands evaluation, but I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly...

      calculate equity vs all hands you think villain would play like that, not just the hand he actually happened to have.

      also, you must have entered the board incorrectly. I get 9% equity on the turn.

      I guess your bet on the flop is correct even against such a crowd of oponents. On the turn i'm backing down and wishing to check this hand to the end in more than one stick around, but after single oponent it's probably ok to shove.

      phullhand: you cannot assume to be against JT on this flop. In fact, you know nothing abainst your oponent's hand, so equilator ain't really helpfull here...
