Tournament shove EV question

Re: Tournament EV question - So I know how to calculate my break even percentage for calling a bet, based off of the pot odds and my hand equity versus his range, but not 100% sure how to figure out my out of position shove profitability.
For example, I bet pre-flop, button three bets me, I call, and the flop looks good for my hand and now I want to figure out if it’s profitable to shove based on the money in the pot and my hand vs villains range, or choose a different line. Want the calculation to do this off table so I can understand my hands next time. I found the video below, but wasn't sure if this same idea and attached spreadsheet would be applicable for this particular scenario. Any guidance appreciated.

    Great question.

    For (semi-)bluffing all-in I like to use a fold equity calculator.

    It should be pretty straightforward, there's also a video explaining how to use it.
    It basically combines the equity you have when called with your fold equity, which is the whole point of semi-bluffing.

    If you have any questions fire away
