      if it is a donkey i would really call, but it really does depend on how your play is going..

      I would call here JJ+
      Problem with AK- you´re not such a big favorite against random hands (65-35) and they tend to shove with pairs.
      The best you could hope, that the player would shove with Ax, but even against 45 you´re just a 62-38 favorite, which could cause a lot of variance.
      As JJ your equity increase to 77-23 against random hands.

      Does your stack size matters when making this decision? Would you call this shove with a bit looser requirements if you had 20BB not 100BB? If I was playing SSS I might call this shove with 99+ :)

      Against 100BB push I would probably call looser, since he is pushing wider range and I don´t loose so much if we flip.

      i fold.
      we have a flip or we are in bad shape against KK/AA.
      I am calling with KK/AA.
      If he is doing that frequently i call with JJ+ and AK.
