If you've got more than 1/4th of your stack in, it's likely +ev to shove or call with literally any two, depending on a few factors you didn't mention. How many players are left? If this is heads up, definately shove/call. If you're on the bubble, and the next set of blinds will likely put another player all in, you may get away with folding a good portion of your range. This is why ICM knowledge is so important for sngs, and you can easily calculate whether an action with be +ev or not. Don't confuse +ev with +Cev, as they are 2 entirely different concepts.

I'm not the most experienced player, but I fold and see what SB at $1250 brings next hand. Couldn't be as bad as 95os, but this is an oppinionated decision as to how others are playing at the table. More then likely their gonna call when you go Allin to try to boot ya so.............
