      Fact he is halfstacked seems like sign of a bad player, but generally your decision should be based on what you have seen before.

      It's coinflip what kind of hand he has now and what kind of idea he has in his head. In case he is loose/aggro/spazzy - easy call. Besides having QQ+/AQ+ he may have lower pp, AT/AJ, 56o (just because you pissed him off with your betting) and stuff like that. Maybe he lost most of his money in some previous hand so he is just now shoving because he wants to get away, etc., etc., etc.

      I think I would call most of the times unless I haven't seen him doing any weird moves.

      Good luck!

      Agreed. Maybe we're way ahead, maybe we're way behind. But given the dead money in the pot you'll getting very good odds to call it off with a big pair assuming people sometimes jam utter crap or lower pocket pairs in that spot, which they do indeed.

      Shrug, call it off and move on.

      Hope it helps.
