What? Aces, kings, or any card showing up on the board prior to this have nothing to do with whether or not you should shove 10BBs.
Are you telling me if you had KK UTG with 10BBs and there have been a ton of aces showing on flop, you'd rather fold?
I realized I never answered OP's question. With 10BBs and UTG, I think I'm shoving KJ+ A10+, 88+, and hoping it goes well. UTG is a tricky spot, but I think I'd shove and hope we run into a hand we're not too far behind in a 60/40 or 50/50 situation. Also, if we have a tight image, shoving UTG is usually a good sign of strength, so we might get players to fold hands like A/Xs that we're slightly behind with a hand like KJ, and we really force them to have a hand worth calling.
I think with 10BBs, I'd rather take my chances with a shove rather than fold and lose more chips before I decide to shove.
