      What's the reason behind going all-in after a re-raise with TT and JJ? I rarely if ever find myself ahead, in fact it is usually a coinflip against AK or AQ at best (more often than not it is just a higher pocket pair). I just can't think of a reason to go all-in preflop with these cards.

      Since you openraised (4bb), that's going to be the pot you can win extra asside from your stack.

      So you can win 16bb (your stack) + the pot (4+blinds) against your remaining stack.

      Then a mathematical equation of 21.5 versus 16
      21.5:16
      1.34:1 (divided by 16)
      2.34^-1 = 42%

      If you equilate TT versus AK:
      [quote] Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: [b]56.175 %[/b] 55.975 % 0.399 % 43.626 % TT
      Player 2: 43.825 % 43.626 % 0.399 % 55.975 % AKs, AKo[/quote]You have a positive difference of 14% which means every time you do this, you make money even though you can lose 3 flips in a row - it is all about the long term

      Best regards,

      But if you equilate against JJ+, AQs+, AQo+ , which is a plausible range for a shortstacker to re-raise with, or a bigstacker, who knows the SSS or your play in particular you have about 40%, and when you subtract the rake from the pot, which at NL10 is a factor to consider, it does become -EV... I think.... :f_rolleyes:

      Yes with TT it depends heavily on the situation and dynamics. with JJ though, it is broke 24/7 against that range
