      I don't see how you can fold here. 21.8/55.6 = 39.2 % pot odds.

      Against QQ+/AK, you have 40% with AKo. Easy call since you are committed. Note that there is already so much dead money in the pot with the 8 bbs from the other 2 guys, as well as the 20 bbs from you.

      However, I think his 4bet pushing range is weaker, we can discount AA and KK to some extent, and he may even overplay AQ sometimes. I feel we have to call here.
