Default On Bubble: small pair facing push

Here is an example:
UTG: 1300
UTG+1: 3500
SB: 1000 (villain)
BB: 2200 (HERO)

blind=150/300.

HERO has a small pair (22-66).

Fold to villain who pushes, and he pushed in previous 3 rounds on SB too when Blind=100/200, so his range could be any 2, or maybe a little better than any 2. he is a regular 2+2er.

do you call here?

I had problem calling this push since it is at best a coin flip. on the other hand, if I lose, I still has 1200 left.

your input is highly appreciated.

Hang on, 66 is much much different here than 22, you can't clump them together! 44-66 I would certainly call. 22-33 is a lot closer.

Ok so actually 22 is a pretty easy call unless SB is some kind of uber-rock or something, which just isn't likely.

villain is definitely the opposite. though I was so frustrated with his pushes and typed @#$%^&* couple times in the previous rounds.

Call. Not close. Though there is a huge difference between 22 and 66.

yea my bad. since it was 6-handed when blind 75/150, villain had been pushing whenever he is the first one to act. I know he is a 2+2er and solid, and just did not have any hand to call him. this (55) is the best hand I got for me to possibly call his push.
