      Hello axeboy90,

      It depends, if you know the opponent and you are able to over-play him postflop and etc factors. Just with Calling you wont hit often enough and sometimes you might be have to fold your TP, are you able? I'd rather advice to play such hands being a PFA and likely have position on them. Also the problem is that MP3 doesn't have a full stack, therefore I'd rather just fold it. Even if it seems weak but better for beginners. :)

      Best regards.
