Exactly, when called. Plenty of fold-equity in an all in bet, but if you get called by anything less than KK or AA, at least you have a fair chance to win the race.
I see plenty of Ax calls against AK all ins, very rarely AA or KK. If its 22-QQ, at least its a race.
Not too many 22 - 66 calls when I have seen 77 pushed in.
