Note also that if you were not in a HU game there were other hands that could have beat you besides the one you had dominated. That you ended up showing down and losing to a dominated hand is just a kind of unfortunate irony.

So if you were in a full ring game, I'd adjust the odds above quite a bit, maybe by almost 50%. Eg, adding in just 5 more RANDOM hands (for a total of 7 players) cuts your AT equity down to 17%. Playable hands would bring it down even more...

If it was HU, the above calculation is right on.
