Good post

It's a clear fold here. Blinds aren't that high at all and there's two short stacks and you've got a healthy stack. Just ran the numbers and it's -1.7 and -0.4 EV if the Big stack isn't too loose.

This looks like a pretty clear fold to me. You could call if he was pushing every hand, but you can't really afford to race in this spot as just a 2:1 favorite.

If the rolls were reversed and you had the 2930 and he had the 2485 then it is really close. I would probably call at game speed but a fold also looks reasonable here too.

what are you putting him on?
I'm putting him on a big Ace, so you have a coin flip. Which with your stack is not a good bet.
maybe he has a mid pair, which would be nice but might be JJ too or QQ
Your stack is too healthy not to use more wisely as the aggressor.
