Is pushing here way to dangerous? I took the safe (wussy?) way out and just mucked but is AQ too strong to fold here?

4 handed with blinds at 400 i push, you have just enough folding equity with a push here, plus depending on the blinds calling standards you'll be ahead a large majority of the time.

i don't think you can fold a hand this strong when you only have 5 x bb left.

Did you see the guy at 1x BB?

I would love to fold AQ here because BB has about 3 hands and he's toast. That being said, I've just bubbled out twice letting a short stack go down to 1BB and come back to take me knock me out. I think this is an above-average enough opportunity to push (any other raise doens't make since with the blinds as they are and your stack as it is). So yeah, I'd like to fold, but I'm afraid it can come back to haunt you.

Shorties' looking at a near triple up if he picks up a hand better than those in the blinds. Def. a gut-check moment, but I'm pushing w/ no regrets.

Shove it!

yes and i think that i'd take a desperation call from him any day and a "try to knock me out" call by the big stacks any day as well with this hand and double through.

what $$ amount are we talking here?
