      Both opponents are unknown

      when I had to act I thought first that it looks like one of those "only better hands will call you" situations. But, given the pre-flop action I obviously had a chance to be ahead, since JJ-AA AK would re-raise me pre-flop most probably, so quite likely that I am against low pocket pair or overcards. AJ is possible, but I guessed that I might loose on distance if I allow pocket pairs to push me out of this hand. Besides, there is a high chance that guy on the button will bet (without having a decent hand) after both of us checked to him. So I pushed all-in)

      I put it in equilator:

      against two players with a range (22-99, AQs-AJs, KJs+, AQo-AJo, KJo) I have 47% of equity. I guess the range is quite pessimistic, since BB beeing last to act pre-flop could call with Any suited ace or smthing...
      against one caller my equity is around 68% and I get 1:1.8 pot odds... so I guess it was the right play?
