      Hi.

      I think the results actually showed that your call was super standard and I'm sure you are a favourite vs his shoving range.

      AQ > 55, maybe he could have AJ/AT/KQ as well. AK is crushing all of those hands. And you don't even need to be a favourite to call here (even though I think you have more than 50% equity here). You are getting pot odds of around 33% (5.34/15.08), even if his range was exclusively 22-AA, AK, you should have more than enough equity here.

      No problem :)

      I would really suggest playing around with pokerstrategy equilab if you want to improve your understanding of such spots.

      Then when you actually play in-game, your intuition for such spots will be much better.
