You know the chance to win is 48% In this situation. I think with thic porcents you wont pay but once may friend told me: <But if u win you will have x3 your old stack> Then I said: < Huh there ia not solid difference between x2 and x3, so why dont you call push in heads up with 22 33 44 55 it will be flip too, but it will be luck if you winn>
What do you guys think?

well correct me if im wrong, im bit rusty but shouldn't, in order to triple your stack have at least 2 players allin beside you? That way you will hardly have 48% to win unless you hand is pretty good, then the call is of course profitable but in heads up situation, with 48% chances to win you will need dead money to compensate for being underdog, dead money comes from players that invested money in that pot but folded to later action...
All this being said, the right answer is compare your hand odds and pot odds and it will tell you whats profitable whats not, practice that away from the table in hem or equilab and you will develop the fast sense of what is +ev whats not...
