I see no difference between instashove and this example in final result.
wait where you dont see the difference? In a 3bet pot calling a shove is +ev cuz your call is smaller and the pot to be won is bigger thus your pot odds
are better which make that call +ev
hero AKo 100bb
vil TT 100bb
vil bet 3bb hero raise 15bb, vil shove, hero have 85bb left
total pot 200bb
hero win 200bb*43%-85=86-85=1bb
vil snap shoves hero calls
hero win 200*43%-100=86-100=-14bb
oversimplified the math by excluding the blinds but just wanted to show the difference between 3bet pot and snap shoved pot, add someone who flat 3bet but forld to shove makes it even better +ev situation, see where im going with this?
