I will let the more experience posters respond but I would fold this. Looks like it's a coinflip.

Maybe I'm just a wuss...but I never risk my entire chip stack pre flop on AQ...not even AQs.... Hell.. I'd be folding AK in that position, UNLESS the raiser had been making some stupid plays...and even THEN it's a coin flip AT BEST.

I quickly call. You are in good shape against a typiucal players pushing range here and the blinds/antes give you more than enough overlay.

Here is my thinking process and tell me where i am wrong

Only 2 players have been eliminated so far... Last few hands have been allin and everyone folds...

If there are 4 hands in a row where it is push/fold then we know with the 100/200blinds we are getting to that stage with 7 still in. I need to find a hand soon and I may not see a better one than this for a while.

I only have 1200 chips left and after the next few hands will only have 900 left so i need to look for a chance to double up.

I put him on a range of any pair, Any ace with 9+ kicker, KQ and maybe KJ.

that makes me a conflip agisnt 10 hand
A big dog to 3 pairs
A dog to Ak
A fav to 5 other hands.

I think this makes it a true coinflip decision.

Now if i had thought about it like this before I made the call i would have folded... interesting... I figured I looked good.

I just need about 3 minutes to make decissions and i could make the right one.

I call, he shows 44 and it holds up

I rather not take a coinflip that early in a sng. I much rather wait to push in position. Dogger you have a pm. My email is acting up.

Ahhh... but here is the question, there are still 7 people left so it looks like it is early, but it is not...

THe blinds are already 100/200 with a $25 ante and i am at 1200

Maybe I am wrong, maybe this is still early and I have time before i need to flip the coin, but at some time it is probably going to need to happen.

Again, writing it all out I think ok maybe i made the wrong call but i thought it was good when i made it.

this is why we are here right, to learn

I actually think this is a pretty easy call, but oh well.
