Hi sapines1001!

With AQs from the BB, I get a shorty shove and 2 calls. IMO, this is a perfect spot for a squeeze shove. Calling the bet almost pot-commits me and my hand should be well ahead of all of their ranges, especially the short stack and SB.

The other thing to consider. With 16 left, I need chips to get ITM, so since I need to accumulate chips, I'm looking for any opportunity to do so and this one definitely qualifies.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
