Except these players' hands aren't random hands.
FWIW I'd call here, we're probably up against a pair of queens or less, and the other playing holding something like AQ/KQs/small pair.
Pokerstove says AKo against JJ and 88 is 36% to win. AKo against JJ and AQs is 32.5%. Even AKo against KK and JJ is 25%.
We're basically never in bad shape unless one of them has aces. The wider range of hands we assign these guys (eg, AJ, AT, JTs, small pairs) the better it gets for us as well.
