Hello guys

Doesn't he get the odds to call against JJ+,AK? He gets 42% equity and I think he needs less.

I thought 1 step further as you normally should because IF you know very very sure as I said twice already when given an opinion about Fold, that your opponent is a PokerStrategy Shortstacker then his shoverange will be AKo+,JJ+. BUT if he shoves with JJ, his variance is huge since his equity is 50.2% (Source: PS Silver Article) Therefore one can say - a player who wants to avoid Variance as much as possible like me - that JJ can be left out of the range so his range would be AKo+,QQ+

Equity against that is 33,8% and he needs to have 36% according to my calculation:

$5.2+$2+$0.35)x0.95[RAKE] :: 4.2

$7,1725:$4,2

1.70773:1

=

36% Break-Even equity needed

Can you see where I am going? You can call and that's what I recommend for Basic SSS (Stack:Ratio) but from my POV when you want to include calculations for NL25, this is a fold for immense variance.

First, were my calculations incorrect? Shouldn't we go broke against JJ+/AK range with the money of MP3?

Second, I'd like to ask what Xarry's chart are you referring to, cause I don't think I know it? Or, did you only mean to say I should play more basic on that limit? ...according to the charts in articles?

(1) See above +

Equity Win Tie Loss Hand

Player 1: 65,667 % 63,922 % 3,491 % 32,587 % JJ+, AKo

Player 2: 34,333 % 32,587 % 3,491 % 63,922 % JJ

(2) Xarry's Equity chart can be downlaoded through a link on his Coaching info. That said, you have to visit the coachings in order to get the chart ^^

(3) Up and included NL50, there are more Monkeys than TAGs wandering around so basic SSS is the way to go and concerning judging hands, I will stick to basic SSS answers unless you post hands of NL100+

Does this makes sense?
