      i thought that his range was heavily weighted towards 2pair or better. which means i only have FD+SD. should i have called the flop instead of shoving it?

      Given that he is in the BB he can also have some J8, KJ straights that we should account for.

      You are risking 51.75 to win the 118.75 or in other words you need roughly ~44% equity.

      Now here is my recommendation to you.

      Do the math and find out how much equity you have in this cases:

      A) Best case scenario: 2p, sets, straights, strong draws (pair+fd) + worse draws/1p hands
      B) 2p, sets, straights, strong draws + weak draws
      C) Made hands

      he can´t have A and K high flushdraw an I think he is not folding two pair, set or straight to the shove
      So player needs to be c/r folding smt like KQ, QJ that your shove should be profitable
      Since he would likely not do that then I would prefer call more and then fold to strong turn bet ui
