Standard....
165 to call for the 465 already in the pot which you can win...
So:
If you fold : Your left with 165...
If you Call and Win: You'll have a playablish stack of 630...
IF you Call and lose: Your out in 6th...

Your heads up, with fantastic odds, this is the only chance you are going to get really to be heads up, unless acting before you pushes, I think you have to call here, and hope for a low pair or AQ AJ AK so at least you have two live cards....

Standard Call given the odds and the blinds....

If you do that, your gonna be involved most of the time in a 3 way pot with the SB and BB, with much worse odds....This is your chance to win your stack back, getting over 3-1, and heads up...

The next 2 hands you'll be pushing your 'any 2' with no FE. The shortie here is pushing with a wide range, and you are getting 3:1 most likely HU. Win this you will triple up. Win a race with your any 2 push next hand and you double.

I see it the same.

You are short stacked. The best moment to move your chips in is when somebody in front of you goes all-in. Ideally, this would be the big stack to give you the best chance to get heads up with him.

In this case it is somewhat suboptimal because the all-in comes from another short stack with low overall folding equity. However, vis-a-vis the BB the folding equity might be sufficient.
