@ Scourge, yeah I know about ICM but let's just ignore that for now and just concentrate on cEv.
Also, the calling range you are describing isn't really well-defined. Are you saying he is playing all offsuit aces but not all suited aces? Or that he is only playing A8+ offsuit or suited?
But if each player has a 20% calling frequency
, just determine the chance that NONE of the players behind you have a hand to call with, so 80% x 80% x 80% = 51.2%. Which means that at least one of them will call about 48.8%
of the time (assuming you have no blockers to any of the cards in their range).
