ES_shove = ES_BB_calls*probability_BB_calls + ES_BB_folds*probability_BB_folds.

ES_BB_calls = pot_size_bb_calls*equity_bb_calls = (1sb + 1bb + 2*effective_stack)*equity_bb_calls

ES_BB_folds = pot_size_bb_folds = (1sb + 1bb + 1*effective_stack)

ES_fold = effective_stack

You take it from here. ES_* stands for "Expected Stack in case *".
Our equity when vilian calls is 33,89% (Kh4d vs 25% range)

So here we go!
ES_BB_calls = 600 + 300 + (8x50ante) + (2x 8847) * 33,89% = 18994*33,89%= 6437,06

ES_BB_folds=600 + 300 + (8x50ante) +8847 = 10147

ES_fold = 8847

So…

ES_shove = 6437,06*25% + 10147*75% = 9219,515

So if we shove we are winning 9219,515-8847= 372,515 chips!

Is the calculation and the math type correct ?
