    Default AQ vs. UTG raise

    Deep in a micro tournament, i am 25th of 27 players left (around 1000 entries).
    I was for a long time card / situation dead, now finally got a good hand.
    The UTG player was active, but no maniac.
    The effective big blind is 4800 (because of the antes) and i have to do something.
    I see nowadays (even UTG) in micro tourneys open-raises with all kinds of hands.
    And especially from big stacks like this. Thats how they build stacks in most cases.
    I also have "blockers" and it´s not so likely he has QQ or an Ace, right?
    But i am not sure about the correctness of my move (because of his UTG position and the damn result LOL).

    As 25th of 27 and with your stack, it's an easy shove.

    I think this is very close but I agree with a shove.

    Looking at the stacks at the table, it looks like that it's all pretty even if you know what I mean, so it seems to me that it doesn't take to much to get back into it. But as you said, you had been card dead and finally got a hand. If you read him weaker that AQ, then the shove is right I think. There are many hands that he would fold there to a shove.
    The Time To Act Is Now...
