Initial raiser stats were nitty up to this point, only opening two other hands maybe, since we played HU after that in this tourney, his stats are wrong for 6max, 64/48, 104 hands which is ok for HU.
BB was 61/18 for 18 hands, 3bet 50, crazy loose aggrofish, i was calling him 100%, but then initial raiser went all in+i had good stack for 1st place finish. Fold or call?

Hi CrazYJohnnie!

My first instinct is to snap-call here, but I went to an ICM calculator to see what it says. It gives me a calling range of TT+, AKs. My KK is well within this range, so I'm calling, as calling is a +7.26% EV play.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
