      Is this an okay call against unknown? I've seen the big blind being relatively loose in a few hands before.

      I think it's a close call, but if you saw BB being aggressive before then it's probably alright. You need 39% BEQ, so you need him to be squeezing with something like 88+, AQ+ to get an edge.

      Nice evaluation, dandycal! :f_thumbsup:

      Only thing, including the rake BEQ is 41%, but the ranges remain the same as 99 has 41.33 equity against AQ+/88+. And according to your read BB should be able to squeeze with that range, so nice hand!
