      Considering he's 2/0, even though you don't have that many hands, he can easily have aces or kings here. I think I call reluctantly, expecting to lose some of the time, but I note my Villain.

      He's only 40BB deep, and with 2/0 he isn't that likely to have pocket 6s, which puts him on a range of AA, KK, and AQ.

      If he's a good player, he would've raised preflop anyway, so you know he's not a good player which means he's capable of shoving something a queen can beat here.

      Hello Rastlin1,

      Would he ever shove the nuts? :) I doubt so, so therefore I would be still inclined to Call or either Bet myself even out.

      Best Regards.
