      no.. its not ok to call it. With TT you dont know where you stand postflop and 70 cents to 80ct pot is a little too much to figure it out I think. You should fold when he goes aliin.

      I don't think you can call here unfortunately. He looks like a shortstacking reg judging by his stats, which will mean he's basically playing solely for value and getting you to call because you've got good odds. If it was a fish who had just blown the rest of his stack and was down to 30bb then it would be a snap call, but it's not, so I think you have to fold. And knowing that you would find a fold to a shove, you can bet the flop a little smaller, just $0.60 would be fine and give you enough leeway to find a pretty easy fold :)
