191Subscriber7+2.5 = 9.5

Indifference seems the answer

5,972AdministratorLeadProThe value of the fold is + 2.5BBs..

The value of a call is 9.5bbs (opponents $$ and ante, not your own) x .6 = 5.7bbs. But then you must subtract the equilibrium of 50% on 9.5bbs which is 4.25. So 5.7-4.25 = 1.45bbs. By my calculations you would need to be at least a 71% favorite (.71x9.5= 6.75, then - 4.25= 2.5)) to be indifferent. Factor in the fact that you get knocked out if you lose, you can even make a case for 75% or more before you want a call.

The reason why that first math doesnt -- lets say the equity is less but the total pot is more.. like say 30% equity but a 50bb shove. We can't just say .3 x 50 = +15bbs.

Results: in game I decided I would rather take the dead money and told the villian to fold, which he did.

5,972AdministratorLeadPro5,972AdministratorLeadProIm not exactly sure what you are asking.. But if you were to shove 50 bbs and were called and had 30% equity.. you lose 10bbs (result is 15bbs) on the shove as 25bbs is the break even point at 50%.

25-15 = 10.

If you had 50% equity the result would be neutral.

25-25=0.

If you had 40% equity the result would be -5bbs or 25-20=5. B
