      Considering we need close to 48-49% equity this is a spot where we would be gambling going all in.

      Let's assume a range of: 77+,A9s+,K9s+,Q9s+,J9s+,T9s,ATo+,KQo

      Against this we have 59% equity. And that's a really wide range (that's about 13% of all hands).

      So if you fold, after investing only 3 big blinds I don't think it's a huge mistake.

      If we go with the hand it's probably not a mistake either but it's a high short term variance spot, and if you are tilty it can turn into a -ev play because when you lose you have the chance to tilt a lot away.
