      I called all in bacause I was thinking it is possible that villain pushes a little lighter because the dead money in the pot. Villain is unknown.

      SB's move is a bit strong considering he is 3-betting MP so calling is marginal to begin with.

      Once the PFR shoves there we can hope at best for AK for a flip and we'll see KK/AA. I wouldn't give credit for a 4nl player to think that there's a lot of dead money there so he'll start shoving TT/JJ or other random hands (after all the 3-bet and your call look strong enough).

      To call that preflop you need 45% pot odds.
