      I wondered is a call here an option? I definitely am doing it with suited and maybe even with some offsuited connectors. Maybe also something like A8s-AJs. But here i don't like the strength of my hand as also my position, because if i hit one of my pairs, i'm in a pretty bad shape. What do you think?

      Sure it's an option. Don't worry too much. You hit straight or OESD or sometimes trips and you continue, If you hit a pair or 2 pairs, you just check and evaluate.

      I like folding more than calling, because you can easily be dominated and I like playing SC much more than offsuit cards like QJo. There will be just way too many times you will have to c/f. Even more - most player before you are not crazy dogs, so you will be safer if you fold.

      Good luck!

      don´t really understand if you´re ip or oop
      ip I´d likely call more since you´re deep and if you hit two pair+ you can likely win big pot
      If you´re oop then it is close. I think both fold or call are fine, depends how well you can get one pair hands to showdown and how thought are the opponents
