After he limp 3 bet from SB I ranged him mostly on small/medium pockets + some
You had several lines of drawing in this hand. And of course one of them - just 4-bet. Perhaps your villain would even throw 77. In any case, you are strongly attached to the bank after the 3-beth bell. And in the bounty, having a bigger stack, you should try to play all-in with short stacks to get their head. In this case, you just have no luck.

In this case, you only have ace high postflop, and you need an ace or a jack to get top pair or a straight. If you consider your opponent doesn't have a K, then a Q could do it, but I wouldn't count that out. So this leaves you with 7 or 10 outs. So the odds of drawing something are 6.7 to 1 or 4.7 to 1, and if you here, you have pot odds of 3.7 to 1, so it's a negative EV play.
Going all-in, if called, is even worse. So the real question is : do you really think your opponent is folding here ? Cause you are semi-bluffing here.
I think 4-betting, or shoving, preflop could have been a better option, but I'm not sure about that.

Im either shoving or folding pre once he makes 1120. That raise has basically committed his stack and calling is the worst option IMO

Shovar PF is spew with this AQo. In this blind and with 52 bbs of stack effective, I fold in his re-raise, the position helps us.
