    against unknown villain I fold here. To make it profitable ICM wise villain has to shove around 65% hand. I am not sure about a random is shoving 65% here.

    Not trying to be argumentative, but do you really think even stone cold fish don't know about jamming into the shortie BVB with most/whole of range?

    while I agree with your critique i wonder if we are spewing here by folding

    You are 2/6, no need to call there and risk that.

    Calling range for me here is AJ+ 77+.

    It depends on SB shoving range. In most cases its a fold unless you can put V on range which you have 65% equity against.

    fold against most randoms, unless he seems to be playing decently and taking spots like these. Obviously A4o has very poor equity if he is not jamming wide there, so although the call is almost always +cev, even if villain is tight, your equity in the tournament is hurt by making a marginal call.
