Again, my apologies for the confusion.
With 12BB, I'm basically shoving any time I enter an opened pot. There might be exceptions, but the circumstances would be very unusual and highly player-specific, so much so that I don't even have an example off the top of my head.
Popping it to 2700 takes more than half your stack and leaves you with less than 6BB behind. If he shoves, it will cost your remaining 2300 or so into a pot of 6250, so about 2.7 to 1 pot odds
. Mathematically, it's correct to call unless you can put him on an extremely narrow range, maybe 1-2% which is like AA KK and *maybe* QQ and/or AK.
So in practice, you should call rather than fold and cripple yourself, and since you should call a shove, you should get in there first to give yourself as much fold equity as possible.
