      Normally, I fold here. Villain is unknown with a small stack, making me think he's bad... I don't think people generally act this way with AA or KK, I'm thinking the're more afraid people will fold to all ins. I called thinking he'd do this with AK, AQ, QQ and maybe pairs like 8+. Also other hands like KQs,
      QJs, maybe KJs. I'm ahead of all those hands.

      Or should this just be an auto fold to an unkown? LOL

      Hi Edukator,

      Preflop: you need close to 50% equity to make the call.

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 47.07% 46.21% 0.86% 88+, AQs+, KQs, AQo+
      MP3 52.93% 52.07% 0.86% JhJs

      That's given the range you gave him. So it's a bit better than break even.

      This is a spot of high variance (shorter term) and you rarely have a lot of equity advantage, however I don't think it's a mistake to call given his stack size and positions.
