      Blinds: 20/40

      Hero Stack: 600
      Villain: 1000

      Villain post SB 20 (Villain Stack: 980)
      Hero post BB 40 (Hero Stack: 560)

      Villain (SB) open raise 80 (Villain Stack: 900)
      Hero (BB) all-in 560 (Hero Stack: 0 [all-in] )

      Hello how much equity do I need if we say that Villain will call Hero all-in?

      Can I use the formula like this?

      risk / ( risk + reward + blinds)
      560 / ( 560 + (560+560) +60 ) = 32,21%

      (560+560) because Villain will call my all-in so the pot size would be: 560+560=1120 + 60 blinds.

      Can I use the formula like this?

      Hy!

      I think it's your risk/total winnings.
      With the numbers: 560/1180=47,5%

      The above formula is right except total pot is 1200.

      And its right if villain calls you 100% of the time, otherwise you need less equity, based on how often he folds to the all in.
