      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 66.550% 66.083% 0.935% 32.982% JJ+, AhKh, AhQh
      Player 2: 33.450% 32.982% 0.935% 66.083% TsTc

      He calls 33,15$ to win 77.4$ which gives him 2.3:1 ~ 30%

      His equity is 33.45% > 30% -> it's an ev+ call.

      He didn't really have a choice once he 3bet/c-bet that strong, he can't put you on QT so he often has 8 outs, maybe only 6 if you happen to hold QQ which you could 4bet/call preflop for all he knows, maybe 10 if his T are live, so he's got odds to call it off.

      Whether he should have 3bet / c-bet huge like he did to begin with is debatable tho, most tags in your shoes will show up with 88-QQ/AQ mostly and maybe KK+/random speculative hands sometimes, so he'll only be able to fold out the offsuit AQ combos and the hands that connected with this very wet board the weakest. That's a tough price to pay to force yourself in a 2:1 situation the times you get called, even tho the other lines aren't much better and more difficult to play too.

      Hope it helps.
