Villain is unknown and goes crazy shipping over 120bb in pre when UTG. To call here we have to be good more than 50% of the time, against a likely range of QQ+,AKs,AKo we only have 40% equity. However against TT+,AKs,AKo we have 52% equity, is he shipping wide enough here to make this call profitable or should we just fold and move on?

Fold. I have nothing invested in this pot. All I have is the opportunity cost of folding. I'd only call an open shove 100bb+ without information with AA/KK.

In Zoom poker I feel this is kind of a gross spot and I guess it's fine to both fold or call especially since you dont know anything about the guy. I do think that the chance of catching someone openshoving in Zoom with a random hand/weaker pair/AK is still pretty high so I don't mind calling after all. At regular tables I would call this off happily if I see the slightest indication of villain being a weaker player or being on tilt.
