      Hi,

      if he's a decent SS player you could consider to fold, because
      1.) you raised from UTG
      2.) you have just a flip against his pairs: 88-QQ
      and you're behind against KK, AA

      If you don't mind variance you can call of course.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      AKo is slightly ahead of the range: 88+,AJs+,KQs,AQo+
      if you think that a shortstacker will push with a wider range, you definitely have a +EV call.
      For example, if a shortstacker push 11.6% of the hands (22+,A9s+,KJs+,AJo+,KQo) your AKo have an equity of 53.9%

      reads + simple math IMO

      never fold AK against shortstacks
      Their pushing range is wider than KK/AA
