      Assume that whenever Villain donkbets you, that you are going to get called unless his donkbet is a minbet or something.

      So with having that said, its pretty safe to calculate it from there so if he folds, well then you win it ofcourse ;) so

      Pot + Your Stack that is going to call + your stack : Your remaining stack

      $0.85 + $1.6 + $1.6 // $1.6
      $4.05 / 1.6
      2.5/1 = 28% you need.

      But apart from that, I would fold this one because there are Two :ds, a King which makes your Jack rather useless and discount your Ace which leaves you with 2 clean outs BUT even then, if you face AK, your actually drawing ''dead' more or less. For 2 outs you need 11:1 based on 2 cards to make it +EV

      As you can see, its a clear fold.

      So I would need 7 clean outs then? Say if my hand was diamonds instead of clubs, I have 11 outs + backdoor, so thats an easy shove?

      Pot + Your Stack that is going to call + your stack : Your remaining stack

      Is there an article with this formula in it?

      with just 1 overcard i dont even start calculating ;)
      if you would have a flushdraw you would play it as a made hand according to basic articles!
