      No info/read on Villian. Still turn A is bad for me especially he insta pushes with his remaining stack. I need around 25% equity but do I really have that much equity here???

      Kinda hard to say without any reads except that he's bad.

      The thing is I don't really believe he has Qx there when he makes that small bet / call on the flop, most likely he'd bet/jam with his shortstack or not bet at all to begin with, and I don't think he'd shove the A turn with Jx either, so I guess that leave a spazz with clubs without the Ac and with stuff like KJ, which he's probably somewhat unlikely to make given how passive he seems overall preflop and on the flop.

      Compared to all the AK/AJ/KT/AT he could play exactly like that, I think it's a pretty tough call to make even with those pot odds.

      I don't think it can ever be considered a big mistake either way tho.

      Hope it helps.
