    Unless you are missing the fold button, I don't see any reason to not fold AQs there.
    Judging from villain stats AJ could be on their range, but without reads I would just fold and wait for a better spot.
    If of course villain was shoving loosely on previous occasions, the call becomes the best move.
    But it's not a big mistake, since you are usually flipping vs their range.

      Hi sapines1001! IF the opp was shoving their entire 8.1% range here preflop, then I'm in a 49%-51% flip and will lose slightly more than I will win... IF it is a HU pot. There are still 4 opps to act behind me. However, the opp here has 14BB, so they do not need to shove if they don't want to. Also, the opp is in early position, which also should mean that this is a stronger hand. There also is another thing to consider. The opp that shoves here is in first place for the yearly leaderboard for these games and the winner at the end of the year receives a Sunday Million ticket. With the opp being in first, they should not be taking the possibility to miss out on points and possibly lose over $100... another reason that they should be stronger than normal. With everything here saying that the opp should be very strong here and FOUR opps to act behind me that could make this a multi-way pot where AQ plays much, much worse, I'm mucking AQ here. I'd re-shove with AK, but weaker aces, I need to fold. Any hand that I would play, I absolutely need to re-shove to try to isolate the opp. Calling invites the others into the pot and I do not want to be in a multi-way pot with an unmade hand. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
