Well i'd say that the ranges could be pretty much those covered in the file i attached. Then, knowing approximately with what range the aggressor shoves, you could figure out if you could beat him or not or if it is +EV to make the call or fold.
For example: two players limped in (they have 15 and 30 bb). it is folded to the small blind, who has 8 bb left and he shoves. (approx. this is his shoving range: 22+ Jx+ T2s+ T3o+ 92s+ 95o+ 82s+ 85o+ 73s+ 75o+ 63s+ 65o 52s+ 43s). If you got Ax, Kx, Qx or any pocket pair, you pretty much got him covered. But i guess the big question is: if you're the one with 15 bb, do you call with Ax, Kx, Qx, Jx? If you're the one with 30 bb, do you fold Ax, Kx, Qx?
