basic shortstack maths question

Can someone please help me with this basic maths question

playing HU NL, villain buys in for 20BB I cover
villain opens 80% buttons to 2bb and calls a shove with a 20% range

trying to work out a shoving range and looking for the actual formula so i can start tweak/learning this stuff

THanks

Re: basic shortstack maths question

I'll get you started. If Villain is raising 80% and calling with 20%, you have 75% fold equity.

so 75% of the time, you will win your big blind back, plus the 2bb raise (3bb)
the other 25% of the time, sometimes you will win 21bb and sometimes you will lose 19bb.

So when (.75 * 3) + (.25 * your EV when called) > 0, you profit.
