Both situations are bad. The first one looks like a good hand but almost no chips so guaranteed to have several callers. The second one is a terrible hand but sb likely has a trash hand too.. however, I still think AQs is way more likely to win than 92o.

I didn't run the range math but I'm pretty sure 92 heads up vs any 2 cards is better than AQ in a potential 3 way pot.

I displayed the hands to show how table dynamics can make 92 and AQ almost even in a sense.
I would go with the AQ but I think Math says 92 is the winner.
Anyone wanna run it through the calculator for me?

Quick check on equilab shows AQs 50% vs 2 random hand 25% each. Where as 92o hu 40% vs one random hand 60% .So it's actually closer than i thought but AQs comes out with a significant 10% edge in the two scenarios by my calculations.

Super Awesome for the math
remember that 92 pot also had roughly 700~ in blinds and antes
92 might be a 40% to win but its getting an extra 12%~ overlay from the pot
so its even closer than that to AQ for equity imo

I would fold both hands, the first by the number of players still has action, it would be a lot of courage, the second by the weak hand.

But if I were forced to pay by any of the two would certainly be the first, the value of the cards.
