we don't have to improve our opponents hands by much to make this an ugly spot. just give J532 the queen of diamonds rather than the deuce of spastics and you scoop less than 1% of the time, chopping about 50% for equity of 26%

even if you do have an edge here, which you might if they're bad enough, it's too small an edge to be throwing your entire stack behind, especially when there's a reasonable chance someone is going to bust.

I try to make a pokerstove estimate by isolating the features of the holdings into fewer categories:
google for omaha equity calculator. you scoop 15.17% and chop 50.30%. you could refine this to take sidepots into account but who has time for this kind of nonsense.
