Late game, 14 players remaining, we are sitting around 5th.
Villain playing pretty LAG 25/20. Preflop I was planning on calling a re-shove from seat 1, seat 4 and both blinds.
Can we profitably call villain's stop and go? We need to call 2505 to win 6685, so we need to win 37% of hands. Against any pair we are no more than 30% favorites, even 4x is a 75% favorite. Can villain show up with enough no pair hands to make this call profitable?

Writing this and running the equities make me think this was a clear fold but I just wanna make sure.

I've not much of a maths orientate player but I would reluctantly let this hand go but it's close. If villain had a pot sized bet left then I would make the call. Cheers, Chris.
