I'm not sure I agree with the range completely here, I'd say a 20/15 would often fold KT pre (if not suited) and someone at nl50 will not necessarily donk out KJ or even c/r it on the flop, playing it tricky planning to c/c down or c/r the turn or something. Picking up the A does help us against what could be a significant part of his range (assuming KTo/QTo folds pre, AK 3bets and Jx folds to 2 barrels), although I do agree that it is much less significant than the feeling you get "oh my gosh I made top two".
