      This hand was between two villains, after it I wondered if mp was right to call.

      If it had been my hand I think I might have called, thinking bb might be shoving quite wide (he's not sss, just losing), but not sure it would be right thing to do

      pot is 0,02+0,1+0,09+0,55= 0,76$ and you need to call 0,45$.
      So you get 1.69:1, which means you have to win 37% to be break even minus rake.

      Against 10% you get exactly the odds:
      A6s 37.37% 284,135,100 20,413,896
      10% 62.63% 483,110,844 20,413,896

      but if he is shoving tighter, then you should fold

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      A6s 31.87% 153,222,672 12,245,076
      7% 68.13% 334,525,020 12,245,076

      Since it is marginal spot I generally like to fold there.
      You can find better options to stack shortstack

      With AQ, I guess you can Call it while being the MP and went for a raise unless you know that he is really a nitty shorty. :D Likely will get a flip there.
