Do you normally raise 10 times the big blind with AQ (or any hand for that matter)?

What position were you in?

well, if the bb is willing to call 400 on the 2nd hand, he's probably an all in donk who is gonna call any bet u make until he's all in. u went wrong by risking ur whole tourney on the 2nd hand with ace hi

and if he's not an "all in donk" , you are going in crushed when he calls 10x pre imo and probably looking at 3 outs if that stack em high! MT
