What type of player was he? and therefore what range of hands is he making this raise with?

What was his stack size?

What is your table image?

Tbh the only question that i would consider is his opening range. If you think that he will open raise utg with a wide range then i guess your shove is +EV. However Most average players are only opening with a relatively tight range and your all in is at best 50 /50. As youre not shortstacked i would have thrown A K away here especially as you have players to act behind you.

For my table image...i played very tight whole tournament i played 5-6 hands for 3 hours and all of them i won preflop...but the players i was with on the table dont pay attention to kinda things...

If he is playing that tight This might be a fold?

Just a thought, However I like the shove instead of a Raise / fold but again depends on the Range of hands you think he raised with. If he calls are you ahead of his range of hands KQs or worse, you are flipping against any pair below KK and in trouble if he only calls with AA or KK.

I guess you are basing the question based on the outcome whereas the answer is based on a range of possible hands. Sometimes you make the right move and lose, sometimes the wrong move and win, but the key to a long term success is to make correct decisions even when the cards don't run your way. EG against a good player it is correct to fold 73o out of position. Sometimes the flop will come 333 but that does not mean our fold was incorrect.
