      risky squeeze imho as mp3 looks like a short stacker and may be ahead fo your AQ. without stats i would call preflop at most but more likely id fold.

      If you play against PS sssp:

      Calling Range AK+,TT+
      FoldRange: AQ, 99
      Thus FE = 30%
      Equity against AK+,TT+ = 30.6%
      Deadmoney $1


      EV then is -$0.41 so I would muck this one

      The dead money doesn't cover your losses enough , moreover please re-read the article of ''How to play against another SSp'' since it covers dead money as well in borderline EV decisions!

      That SS was not playing SSS. I had only 7 hands on that guy but it two of the seven hands that he played he limped from early position so I was not concern with him.

      Hi Gerv,

      Any chance you could go through the calculation again in more detail? I don't understand how you get the FE or how you get the EV.

      Sorry - confused easily, but if I could understand this it would really help my game.

      Thanks in anticipation,

      Tim

      Normally EV calculations do not really apply to basic SS limits like Nl25 but I want to show that with a simple approach to ranges, some moves are borderline and marginal.

      In this case I used and will always be using:
      EV = Pot*Foldequity + (1-Foldequity)[(eff.Stack+Deadmoney)*Equity – (eff.Stack*(1-Equity))]
      You can define calling range using Stove and giving an opponent a range AK+,JJ+. In % thats 3%. Now if he only continues with Aces, thats 0.5%

      Dividing 0.5% by 3% and you will get the callingrange. (1-CallinRange) is obviously the FE%.

      Do you understand it now ? :) Sorry for the delay, partying eh :]
