That is MASSIVE. He just happened to run really well. Doesn't mean Marsh didn't make the correct decisions.

Can you show the math on that?

So ... Call it 430BB instead.

My pony is slow, and Dizzy's post above is correct. I rounded a tidge and used the "random hand" numbers, instead of the 100% range numbers, which are slightly different, so that's why the answers are slightly different No. That is not how the math is done. Neither of them are. AJ hand 64% of the time we will win \$900 (+576) 36% of the time we will lose \$900 (-324) Overall EV of the AJ hand +\$252 KQ hand 62% we will win \$1K (\$620) 38% we will lose \$1K (-\$380) Overall EV +\$240 A7 hand 59.4% we will win \$1.6K (+\$950) 40.6% we will lose \$1.6K (-\$650) Overall EV +\$300 Total EV +\$792 Divided by \$5 BB equals +158.4BBs, as Dizzy estimated. Total overall EV Last edited by Garick; 06-06-2019 at 11:43 AM. Reason: slow pony

No, edge is applied to the money we put in, not the total pot.
.28*900 = \$252 is the correct answer.

More typically we calculate EV by enumerating each possible payout multiplied by the probability of that payout. Since this is an even money bet it's easy to calculate the edge (your .28*900 method wouldn't work as cleanly if the bet wasn't even money)

900*.64+(-900)*.36 = \$252

BTW, Angrist's numbers are a bit off

AJo vs. random : .6356
KQo vs. random: .6146
A7 vs. random : .5936 (marshman didn't specify suitedness)

Assuming the 900/1000/1600 numbers:

(.6356-.3644)*900 = \$244
(.6146-.3854)*1000 = \$229
(.5936-.4064)*1600 = \$300

In sum 155BB +EV

 06-06-2019, 11:47 AM #23833 Dizzyqtp Carpal \'Tunnel     Join Date: May 2015 Posts: 7,384 re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances it looks like Angrist/Garick used all AJ, KQ, A7 combos vs random hand instead of specifying offsuit, so that would include suited combos which is why their equities are a bit higher.
 06-06-2019, 11:47 AM #23834 MikeStarr Carpal \'Tunnel   Join Date: Jan 2016 Posts: 7,978 re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances I guess this is getting too close to strategy but Id like to know from MarshMan, where he was sitting in relation to the crazy guy? Also, was he jamming every hand blind or was there some pattern? Did he announce before the hand he was jammng and did it he do it when he said he would? Were there other bind shoves that other people called? And most of all, is it possible that he looked without Marshman seeing him look on the AA hand, which happens to be the biggest stack he jammed. Or at least the biggest that Marshman called. All those things factor in IMO.
 06-06-2019, 11:50 AM #23835 XtraScratch8 veteran   Join Date: Jan 2019 Posts: 2,921 re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances I definitely had a guy who angled me for 100bb’s when he “blind raised” KK while switching seats. It was pretty dirty. ****ty players/people will do anything for \$500.

Yeah, I just took Angrist's numbers and showed how he was missing the negative side of the EV calc.

 06-06-2019, 11:56 AM #23838 Angrist Pooh-Bah   Join Date: Sep 2011 Posts: 3,883 re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances I used all combos, and screwed up a mental shortcut for the money we put in and lose that was completely incorrect due to low coffee levels. It is worth noting that in these types of spots we do need to be 100% sure that the shove was blind. Especially if the guy is *saying* that he *shoved* blind. I've seen that angle a few times. Works best after 1 or 2 real blind shoves.
 06-06-2019, 11:57 AM #23839 MikeStarr Carpal \'Tunnel   Join Date: Jan 2016 Posts: 7,978 re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances I dont know how I screwed the math up. I do All in EV calculations all the time (and get made fun of for keeping track of it). What I didn't know what the percentages of those hands vs a random hand. The percentages are slightly higher than I would guessed.

Psychologically, sure, it might not be worth the risk. Mathematically there's no basis for this type of thinking. Just because we won't get this specific type of wager many times doesn't mean it doesn't help us reach the "long run." We need to look at each bet in isolation, and it's actually completely irrelevant whether or not we get to continue to make these bets in the future. A7 vs. random for \$1600 is a very, very good bet to make and almost certainly a better bet considering both EV and risk than a normal \$25/h 2|5 game.

not sure where you got that range but this is a bit off.

Angrist posted the range a few pages back that is correct

I dunno how you got that but it's not correct. 65s has only 43.13% equity. The following is correct assuming Equilab's accuracy.

22+,A2s+,K2s+,Q2s+,J6s+,T7s+,98s,A2o+,K2o+,Q5o+,J8 o+,T9o

Posts: 24,603 re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances Yeah, mine was a total range that is ahead of a random hand, with the stuff at the bottom balancing out the things that are well ahead. The bottom end is, as you correctly note, not ahead. Even the corrected one will surprise most people, though.

That's true as a range, but not all of those hands are actually >50% against a random hand. 65s is only 43% and we should *not* be calling a blind shove with it and we don't need to include it for balance.

I actually sat and worked this out once (because of the frequency with which a particular V would pull the "blind straddle all my money" move). And all the hands that are >50% equity against a random are:

22+, T9o+, J8o+, Q5o+, K2o+, A2o+, 98s+, T7s+, J6s+, Q2s+, K2s+, A2s+

That total range is about 58% against a random hand.
There's still some surprising stuff in there. Like any K or almost any Q.

So if we really wanted to amp up the meta EV and we can close the action HU, we can roll one card and call if it's a Q or better without looking at the other.

It's pretty easy to remember "any A, K, Q, J7+, pair, or 9+connector" and get close to a 'correct' range.

It would be more helpful to me (and I'm sure others) if you could set this to like a rhyming tune, preferably something folksy.

Gk,thx!G

 06-06-2019, 01:28 PM #23849 MarshMan114 grinder     Join Date: Oct 2018 Location: Upstuck City Posts: 569 re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances He for sure did it blind. 100%. The first one he was in the BB with his arms crossed and sitting back in his chair. Tells the table he will blind raise. Get a few limpers and he calls them idiots because he’s blind raising. V is in 6 seat. I’m in 2 seat. I limp with all intentions to call. He blind shoves. Folds to me and I close the action. I think the last one he shoves UTG before the cards are even out since he’s first to act. As far as frequency goes, the first two were in a row or at least in the same orbit. He ‘looked/played’ maybe 1/2 the time and blind shoves the other half. I was done by his second orbit. He’s a maniac so no pattern. I think one other person called one with a shorter stack because he had AKs blind and I would’ve won with my 34o. So no, he doesn’t actually play poker that I can tell. And I do remember folding a few times to other blind shoves by him.

So on the 2nd shove does it change anyone's thoughts on a call with 3,4,5 still behind you? This was the A7 call?
