If you disagree with all of my comments I'd like it if you would explain why, this is a poker forum discussion and we are here to learn and exchange ideas.
No you did not insult me, your post came across as a bit condescending I am guessing now it was not your intention. I have not seen anyone breakdown a comment here like that and also there were other posts in this thread saying similar things to what I said and you only singled mine out. Anyways no biggie.
Explanation for why I disagree comes down to the answer to a simple question:
Would you call a 50 bb shove preflop of a person that shoved into 5 players? If yes then you should shove if no then you cannot shove.
This is level 7 into a tournament which is about more than 40 minutes into the tournament so a lot of the loose gamblers are already out. Need to make full use of AA you only get them ever so often. We don't cover anyone so we can gain no bounties right now so our goal should be to chip up.
Position will not matter post flop we already have the betting lead and first to act on all streets with the intention of barrelling on all. We want to take the flop multi ways top pair isn't folding, middle pair isn't folding draws are not folding. Yes our chances of winning the pot may decrease sometimes but we will give our self a chance to win more chips this way. AA is not the hardest hand to play post flop.
Preflop by not shoving we give a medium strength hand the opportunity to shove to isolate or call. Hands like 88 and A10 may not call a shove but they might shove a small raise to isolate for our bounty.
With regards to the light squeeze play it is something I would do and I am sure there are others that will as well. I only referenced it to show that other players at the table might view it as a light squeeze and may come over the top.
