KQ will always be a dog vs normal shoving ranges
If you have a read of V pushing wide or have a big stack and wanna gamble some chips you can call

As a default, I'm pretty much always folding this spots

Re: would you call with KQ off in this spot?

We need 38% against his range, it has to be VERY close.

MP2 37.77% { KQo }
MP3 62.23% { 22+, ATs+, KQs, AJo+ }

We have to guess if the shoving range is tighter or wider than that. It can easilly be wider... But in doubt I guess we should assume his range should be pretty tight in the BB, he's supposed to defend most hands we're hoping to see when you open in EP.

If we open HJ/CO/BTN we really have to call, resteal light is a thing. But some people don't care about positions and will "resteal" BBvEP, it's a very close spot, we won't be making a huge mistake either way.

You need more equity to call bro... You can't lose the flip and become a shorter stack
This isn't a cash game...
At least 3-5% extra equity to call in a tournament

Apart from direct ICM considerations (bubble of some kind) this is not true.

id have to agree that spots where we have a narrow edge should be folded if calling and losing would significantly affect the play-ability of our stack
