I Has A Question

Someone explain this to me. Please.

$1/$2 PLO 6 max. 5 players.
(All "dollar" amounts are in play chips as usual)

UTG ($11) limps with Ks 3d Js 2d
I ($51.60) raise pot to $9 with Ac As Jd 4c (meh but this is 5 max)
Button ($252.55) folds
SB ($48) who just sat down calls $8 with Ad Qh 7s 6h
BB Full Tilt Enormous Donkey Red Pro raises all in for $22.05 with 8s 8d 7d 7h
UTG calls all in for $9

I re-raise all in. The pot is now $90.05.

SB has $39 behind to call. All of that is at risk against me, who raised initially and just FOUR BET ALL IN.

My question is this: WHO %^&*Iing CALLS THERE WITH Ad Qh 7s 6h?

Do you think your potential third nut heart flush draw might be good? That you might pair your ace against THREE other players, one of whom just four bet, and THAT might be good? You might make a straight with your 76? You might be the only one with AQ and could make broadway?

Help me, please. I don't get it.

And no, this post isn't about the Full Tilt RNG being out of lube this evening. That's not it at all. I just want someone, anyone, to tell me why you call with that ... that ... that GARBAGE.

UTG is a retard too, but I'll excuse that as a stupid short stack play. The Red Pro, unlike their usual form, actually made a solid decision and had pretty decent equity. The SB, as near as I can figure, just emerged from the primordial ooze.

I just don't understand idiots. Maybe that's one of the reasons why I suck at poker.

I like the pro's play, especially if he assumes he's up against a wall of high cards from the other hands.

But that disconnected AQ76 for a stack is worthy of tagging for later fishing tours.
