I would be the only one to win that running in an ALL IN pre-flop with J7 .. in my hand, where I would make 2 pairs or someone else at the table ... in my opinion, none of the three would win this game because that hand belonged to a player who ran with 5 in his hand. hand or he could even have a pair of 55 and run or even 58 in the hand.
When evaluating the hand in question, you should consider the action of the players as they see the cards on the table.
Assuming all three of you went all in before the flop, you would have a 9.17% chance to win the pot. That is severely -EV.
Someone with 58s would have a 21.2% of winning. Again, severely -EV.
Lastly, someone with pocket 5's would have a 19.23% chance of winning. Severely -EV.
While in this specific hand, all of these hands would hit and become profitable, in the long run, if the same hands were dealt and the cards in the middle were random, these hands are expected to lose far more than they are to win. You would need roughly 30% equity to warrant a call in this spot, I'm afraid that, against pocket Aces, no hand combination gets such odds.
The moral of the story is not to go against pocket aces. They're always going to be a winning hand preflop.
