I think I need to find a call here, but dont want to desicrate my stack and double the villain,
Villain has just lost a big pot and was loose anyway 42/48 (27 hands)
pretty sure he is shoving any two

Hi Jonny9691

I call but I'm not thrilled about it.
We have 49.5 % equity versus a 40% range which is quite close to what villain will be shoving imo but if we think he's shoving any 2 then this gives us 57% equity.

Mathematically the call is correct but the problem we have is that if we lose the hand we also lose a huge amount of fold equity.
Calling is best though.

Thanks, Chris.
