So lets play the flop in position, what do we have to lose? If he has Aces we are destined to lose it all anyway. But while the SB would fold to a shove PF without AA or KK. If the SB had indeed made the min raise PF with something other than AA KK we might be able to get some value from him when he bets/calls the flop, turn, river. Then again he might catch a set but I think the possibility of getting a bit more value on non Aces and Kings is worth that risk.
Honestly in a game situation without the time to analyze things, I would have probably shoved preflop as well. And this is just a straight cooler. You have to be God to avoid this.
