      Villain is 16/12/AF 5.7/WTS21 /200 hands Was my call allright ??he was so agressive and I thought he can do that move with a range of 1010+ AKs AKo, I got 40% odds due to the dead money ,I think it was something like a break even call.

      Hi alexgrapid!

      With that dead money in the POT I believe that your call is ok to such aggressive villain. But without specific read or vs unknown I do not mind folding here.

      If the call EV is $0 and folding is $0, you might want to reduce variance and fold here.

      I would be folding if any of MP2-CO called the shove as you are mostlikely to KK/AA in such situation.

      Some addtional items you may want to consider:

      What is his 3-betting range? After 200 hands, it start to have some statistical meaning and would help you with better decision.

      What do you think he was thinking about your 3-betting range?

      Best regards

      His 3 betting range was 7.2 ,I think that my image in his oppinion is of a TAG,200 hands are not such a big sample but his AF is pretty high 5.7.Thank you for your analysis.

      With 3bet 7.2 you should be ok to call AK here, as he might be more likely have his range winder than QQ+, AKs in this case.
