Another pot equity question

If you have a 35% equity on the flop; How many people do you need to call your cap/all-in to make it +EV?

You are gonna have to specify if this is limit, nl (and what size your stack and other people stack is) and the pot size on the flop.

Two.

This is pretty straightforward stuff:
If equity*players (including you) &gt; 1 then raising has +EV.
So so if 1/equity&lt;players then the move has +EV
35%=.35 so
The number of players must be larger than 1/.35 which is just under 3.
With three players (two callers), every dollar you raise should make you five cents.

Awesome, this is what I thought also, just wanted to make sure.

Fun fact: Raising with 88 on a 8d 6s 5s flop is correct with 2 callers even if one of them shows you 97 (as long as 97 is not 9s 7s). Also, the other person could have the nutflush draw and it'd still be +EV to raise.

Yeah, you'll get a boat or better almost 40% of the time.
