Before I start i want to apologise to

**VorpalF2F** as you helped me alot but I my tiny brain can't understand those complicated maths

Assumption 1: All MSS have a go broke range of AQ+, 99+

Assumption 2: All MSS have to go broke after he/she 4bets

Case 1:

Lets say MSS open for 3BB and I 3bet to 9 BB

Thus the Maths behind this will be:

9BB to win 13.5BB (His Bet + My Bet + Blinds)

9BB / 13.5BB = 66% I have to be successful to break even

Case 2:

Villain decide to 4bet 18BB (which technically put him all in)

Thus the Maths:

31BB to win 81.5BB (His Stack + My Stack + Blinds)

31BB / 81.5BB = 38% EV

This means If my Hand has minimum of 38% EV vs his Range, I have to call to break even in a long run (without calculating the rake)

Thus if I 3bet with AJ, I can have fold because vs his go broke range, I only have 30% Equity

Case 3 (same as Case 2 but with rake involved):

Villain decide to 4bet 18BB (which technically put him all in)

Thus the Maths:

31BB to win 77.5BB (His Stack + My Stack + Blinds - Rake of 4 BB)

31BB / 77.5BB = 40% EV

This means If my Hand has minimum of 40% EV vs his Range, I have to call to break even in a long run.

Thus if I 3bet with AQ, I have to fold it because AQ vs his go broke range, I only have 36% Equity

Thank you for your time.

Are my equation correct?

And thus in the future with AQ,AJ I have to fold since I have such bad Equity
