Sorry for the late reply I've been busy on the WE :).
Thank you very much BigFiszh, now I find back the results I'm supposed to !
(BTW I had made a mistake in my description, he's folding 40% of the time, thus our EV is +2 instead of 12.)
This is great.
Best of luck.

Hey guys :).
A few years ago I had done an excel sheet where I could calculate that, but I lost it, I am trying to build it back. But my results seem wrong/different from what I remember...
Here is my formula, if somebody had the kindness to point me where I'm wrong, it'd be great...So I use :
EV = (Current potFE%)+((1-FE)((final pot if allin * my Equity)-(what it costs me to go allin * his Equity)))

For example, stacks 100bb : if opp raises 3bb, I 3bet to 10 he 4bets to 22 (current pot is 32), I shove for 90 more to 100, with JJ (I do not mention blinds/dead money to simplify here)) :
If in that spot I want to calculate my EV with the following assumptions : my opponent has a 5% 4bet range and is going to 5bet shove JJ+ and AK (3% of hands), thus my JJ has 36% Equity against his range, and he will fold to my 4bet 60% of the time :
(320,60)+(0,40((2000,36)-(900,64)) =
19,2+(0,40*(72-57,6)) = 24.96.
The result seems wrong, from what I remembered the EV of shoving JJ here should be close to zero...
But I can't see what's wrong with the formula.
Can you ?

Thank you very much :)

I'm currently coaching a friend, and I'd like to know how to be more effective in coaching him.
IE as he is my friend I tend to be too gentle with him, which I guess I should change when I'm coaching him (off course staying supportive, but brutal honesty regarding mistakes seems more efficient than over-indulgence).
For sure there is loads of things to know about coaching that I haven't a clue about, but I couldn't find anything on google about coaching for poker specifically.
Could someone help me with that please ?

Thank you :).

Let's suppose we open about 45% as a default range on BU, and larger against tight players in the blinds.
What range should we open when blinds are 3betting a lot ? For example with 2 regs 3betting 15% each vs BU (for simplicity sake I like to think "blinds 3Bet 30% total") ? Vs 2 regs 3betting 20% vs BU (40% total) ? And what for 25% total, or 20% total ? etc
Off course, here suppose that we want to avoid getting into too much 4Betting war, which is why we prefer to open tighter and hope they'll lose by 3betting too much against our strong range. That might be a strategy better designed to multitabling for example.

Thank you.
