      I think the shove here is very close to break even or even slightly -ev.
      His stats are decent to explore pos-flop. Can we consider the call here?

      What's your range for calling here? What's your plan for postflop? What board textures will you attack, which will you play passively on, which aggresively?

      These midstack players usually barrel off a depolarized range so it's hard to actually do anything against them unless you just flop better which is why I dislike calling. I prefer making a very small 4bet and calling it off. You have folding equity and the spazz factor on these midstackers is amazing. Quite often you see them shove stuff like Ax from my experience. Just make sure he is a legit midstacker and not random player with 50bbs. Not the case here obv, but I mean in general.
