      Villain is 26/19, Given that I open 2BB (misclick, my usual is 2.5BB) and he seems like the cally type, I think he may have some suited connectors and A8s here, along with 22.

      So whats your question?
      Against a very tight range consisting of A8s,88,22 you have exactly 50%
      He never has A8o and AA in this spot imo. He could cr/f 8x in this spot, but could level himself into a call if we raise over the top.
      Why not click it back and fold to a shove :D

      why did you bet so small OTR? so that some low pairs can call more easily because of pot odds? or because you want to have a balanced range here and bet this size for thin value with JJ type hands and also bluffs? anyway, i would have bet way bigger. but maybe betting way bigger would be bad because it's standard to bet big here if we somehow rivered a random ace? (i don't play nl500 zoom, just speculating)
