comment How do I Calculate Expected Value of Shoving, including Fold Equity, in heads up play?
Toby, yes, that is right. It also matches my equation above, save that it converts the (1-x%) values into new variables. That's unnecessary, since the two are entirely related.

Chris, you're entirely right - often half the legal raise is the tipping point for reopening raising. I will correct my answer.

comment What is the usual ruling on an aggressor folding on the river?
I have never played in a casino that did allowed fishing cards out of the muck under any circumstances. Were this taken to the floor management, I strongly suspect other conclusions would be made. Yes, Alice is in her rights to call the floor, but that does not mean that Bob is outside his rights to fold, or that if the floor is called that the result will be exposing the cards from the muck.

There are two problems with this: First, when you lose, you did not lose the entire pot size; you only lost the amount that you bet. Second, this does not account for the fact that he only sometimes fails to fold (e.g. you must devalue the amounts you win and lose when he calls by the frequency that he folds). Note that the existing answer properly accounts for both of those factors.

Bob's play is not only acceptable, but is the standard practice in the majority of live casinos. See this answer to "How do you determine which player needs to show their cards first?"

Actually, he did not say that villain is now on $450. He said that hero has $450 and villain has well over that amount...

comment Do I call a turn all-in with KK with against a possible flush?
I do. People will miss it if it's in the tags only, and it's key to interpretting the hand from line one. I'd say it belongs at the very beginning, right in with stack sizes.

I assume this was $1/$2, given the amounts listed in your backstory and the tags? It would be beneficial to include that in your main question.
