Hi kingcolin001!

With 66 here, I need to see if the odds warrant a fold, call or shove to the preflop shove/call.

To call, I need to put 526257 chips into a pot that will be 1,753,771 (30%).
I then go to pokerstove, put in my hand and I'll use these numbers for the other two opps since there is no read info given. For the short stack, I'll use any pair, any A, any broadway. For the other player, I'll use a top 10% hand. This gives me a hand equity of 31.3%.
That makes calling a marginally positive play.

If I shove, then I have to put 979,400 into a pot that will be 2,660,137 if called (36.8%). This is over 5% more than the equity of my hand, so it would be a -EV play to shove.

Due to these results, I'll call the bet with my 66.

The flop gives me bottom full house and the opp that has chips left checks. With many more chips in the pot than the opp has left, I'll shove the flop here. Just incase the opp has Jx or an overpair to the board, I want to make them pay to draw at a higher full house.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
