      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , K:heart:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.08, Hero raises to $0.24, 5 folds, MP1 calls $0.16.

      Flop: ($0.51) 8:heart: , 5:heart: , 3:club: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.36, MP1 raises to $2.03 (All-In), Hero calls $1.67.

      Turn: ($4.57) J:club:
      River: ($4.57) T:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $4.57

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP1 shows a pair of jacks (Qh Jh)
      Hero shows (Ah Kh)

      MP1 wins with a pair of jacks (Qh Jh)

      I think everything is pretty standard until he raises all in.

      At this point I put him on either a set (less likely), TT+ (not AA, KK as I would have expected a 4bet preflop) or some sort of FD/SD.

      Is it ok to call this play if I put him on that sort of range, in the end I was a massive favourite with the hand he had but when I try and put in his range on equilator I only come out around 50% so doesn't seem so great?

      Hi Jeffers16!

      Withi AKs FD on flop you would like to go broke there.

      After the C-bet on his shove, you need to risk $1.67 to win $4.57 ~ that means you need to win POT 1 in 2.73 times.

      Giving him range of 88, 55, 33, 67s, TT+ you have equity 46%, and you need equity of 36%.
      When we exclude 67s, we still have 44% here.

      Call here to his shove is +EV

      Well played.
