Default $55: Level 7 Big Stack BB

How's my play here? I want to make sure I'm not being results-oriented. How are my plays on each street given the big stack is in the BB?

Is this just a poosh preflop? Against anyone besides the big stack, its usually an automatic poosh for me. How would it change with big stack as BB? Thanks!

I think raising to 700 is a mistake. Push preflop. You have about 8BB and AQ is easily enough of a hand to push and playing this hand postflop may cause you grief.

I push this preflop to avoid spots like this

You don't want to see a flop with AQ. You would be happy to take it down here usually. Raising 2.3BB is bad, because it gives bigstack odds to call with any 2 and take the pot away on the flop.

Gotcha. Thanks. How big does Big Stack have to be (like... HUGE stack over the rest of everyone else) for you guys to fold and wait this out? Maybe if EVERYONE ELSE is going to be all in on their next big blind? Can anyone ICM this?
