      For example in this situation:

      I thought the total pot was 38 and the guy had to pay $28 for it so the breakeven equity was one.

      But also someone said the total pot you had to consider was 46 and 36 to call..

      Im confused, how should i proceed?? lol

      The pot is 38$ - thats 33$ + 5$ dead money.


      So the formula is:

      X * 38$ -3$ (RAKE) - (1-X) * 28$


      X = your equity against his range
      38$ = Pot
      28$ = Money you have to pay to play for the pot.


      If you consider the TOTAL Pot including your money, each fold had a positive EV of 20BB. So I would fold all time long and move up in the limits cause I win 20BB each hand :s_o:

      Would be cool.


      btw - in the upcoming weeks there will be a video concerning this topic =)

      ohh.. I am not using the formula at the moment. I was using xarry2 chart collection, there you can calculate your breakeven equity, but i still not sure what to put on the "Total pot" blank and at the "to pay" blank

      But for getting the BEQ he can use:

      amount to pay/total pot -rake

      so BEQ = $28/$66-$3 = 0.444
      BEQ = 44.44%

      xarry's charts are wicked, however if you're using the BE Equity one, you can also use the Equilator to do the exact same thing. Basically, to get your Equity against Villain's range you should be using Equilator anyway, and by using it to find you BE Equity you are making it a little simpler for yourself when you're playing.

      You can find the tool in the Handrange Calculation section, just click the little calculator button and enter the current size of the pot, and the amount you have to call.

      If BE Eq < Equity vs Villain, call.
