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

Pacific Poker - \$0.02 NL - Holdem - 8 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

SB: \$2.52

UTG: \$3.81
UTG+1: \$2.11

CO: \$2.13
BTN: \$5.18

SB posts SB \$0.01, BB posts BB \$0.02

Pre Flop: (\$0.03) Hero has A 6

UTG calls \$0.02, fold, MP raises to \$0.10, fold, fold, fold, SB calls \$0.09, BB raises to \$0.55, fold, MP calls \$0.45, fold

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. Likely will get a flip there.
