      Hello MattDenness,

      Calling isn't really the best option here vs his stack. Either just get it in if you think he is 3betting light or just fold it while his PFR isn't that huge. Even if you hit one of your overcards you can't be secure either you are ahead plus could as well be dominated vs AK if he is rather 3betting not that much. There is enough of dead money in the pot to consider doing that.

      Best Regards.
