Default On Bubble: small pair facing push (II)

Here is an example:
UTG: 3200
UTG+1: 3200
SB: 800 (villain)
BB: 800 (HERO)

blind=100/200.

HERO has a small pair (22-66).

Fold to villain who pushes (he is a regular 2+2er)

do you call here?

Please, don't clump 22 to 66 together, as I said in the other one. 66 is so much more powerful than 22 it's not funny, honestly.

But anyway, here a call with 22 is mandatory anyway, even if it wasn't a 2+2er. So you can imagine 33-66 is even easier a call

why? you posted many times that you would not take a coin flip on bubble. I still have a tiny little FE left even if I folded. I can understand the call with 44-66, but with 22?

You only need to win 41% of the time here, by ICM, to make the call. It's not always the case to avoid coin flips - it depends on your stack, other stacks.. which is what ICM allows for. He only has to be pushing top 19% here to call or something ridiculous, which is obviously every time.

Avoiding coinflips is a good thing, when you have a stack. There's about t400 in dead money here, so you're priced in to make this call. Plus, Villain pushes almost any 2.

Have to call anything that isn't trash, and 22 doesn't come close.
