# Calling 3-bet Shove with A8s? - 9 Man SNG Late Stages HU

Hello, I'm wondering if this call is +ev? or cEV?
I don't know how to set ICM player cards (can I even do that?) so I'm posting on here. All I can do is the quiz.

Thanks,

There is no ICM heads up, so it's just a question of pot odds. You need to call 4683 to win 11016. 4683/11016*100=42.51. So you need 43% equity against his range for your call to be profitable. Easy call.
