Hi didanz!

That's the reason why I asked.... as this hand needs to be played differently if it's a league game.

In a league game, with AQ, I'm going to make a standard raise, but since I do not have a made hand, I need to fold to the shove. I need to save every chip that I can in order to last longer and accumulate more league points.

If this was a cash tourney, then the key is a read on the opp.
If the opp is tight, then I need to fold (their range should be AQ+, maybe AJs+ and pairs and my AQ doesn't play well against this range).
If the opp is loose, then I'm calling.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
