      Hello Aceton13,

      We need like 44% equity there to make it profitable, therefore I'd say it's depending a lot on the opponent. Although overall, I'd say it's safer to fold. For example against this range:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 61,725% 61,725% 0,000% 38,275% JJ, 55, 22, QdTd, 9d8d, 7d6d, KdJh
      Player 2: 38,275% 38,275% 0,000% 61,725% AsAd

      We likely loose in long run money. And even if we add like one more Jx into his range what ain't that likely, although sometimes even reasonable, we don't get that great equity either. Of course we could add like 2pairs there, but I rarely see them being that loose to Call with hands like 52 or J5.

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 59,293% 59,293% 0,000% 40,707% JJ, 55, 22, QdTd, 9d8d, 7d6d, 4d3d, KdJh, QdJc
      Player 2: 40,707% 40,707% 0,000% 59,293% AsAd

      Since often times I expect them to raise with some hands like QQ+.

      Best regards.
