I'm not really sure. I think I would call but I wouldn't criticize someone for folding. Forthelulz elaborated for me already but I was just trying to say that imo focusing on these decisions is not a good use of our energy.
I've been meaning to start a thread in uNL with the same point. I once noticed that almost every thread on the first page was about making somewhat big folds. It's natural for 25nl players to focus on those decisions because they seem important. They lost money in that session and calling when they were beat appears to be why. The problem is that most of those very close spots are just worthless to analyze because the EV of calling and folding is almost identical (not necessarily saying this hand is the same).
Basically people want to know why they lose at poker. They think it's when they called with two pair but lost to a straight. But it's really because they missed a value bet in some 10bb pot and they missed a good 3barrell spot in a different hand.
