Yes, bad shove.
You’re risking a lot to win a little. If you can’t stand getting premium hands beat, then you probably shouldn’t play poker :/

Yes that was a bad shove.3bet is more reasonable. When we have premium hands like AA/KK/QQ etc. , we want to get some value from worst hands, and not making your opponents fold their hands.
Next time try to 3b 9bb-10bb in position and 10bb-12bb out of position.
