      Call shove from midstacker? I am not sure what is a cold shove range from a middstacker regg, and if I can call profitable.
      Since ipoker nl20 is full of fish midstackers I call JJ. Would call with AQ, TT be ok against unknown?

      If he's seen you active he will shove here with something like 77+, AQ so JJ is definitely a call. Usually I would call TT+, AK if he has like 40-50bb... vs 60bb I might call less but if I've seen his very active and basically always raise or fold preflop I would call the same or wider depending on pot odds and a rough estimate of his range. Basically, midstackers know that, with good folding equity, pairs have the best equity to shove as a bluff. You have about 33-36% equity postflop against a tight-ish calling off range. If you don't adjust and call wider, they just print money.
