Hello guys, this is my first post here on this forum.
I just got busted from a tournament in a situation like this: blinds are 30k/60k with 8000 antes. My stack is 989k at the moment, which makes it roughly 16 BBs. The UTG player in the hand that I got busted had a stack of 2m chips. He opens up the action with a raise to 180k. I look down at AQs from MP and I thought the best course of action was to rip it in, given the dead money in the pot and the amount of blinds I had. Anyways, action folds all the way back to the UTG players which calls with AKo and I'm eliminated.
This spot has happened to me several times in the latest 15 tournaments I played. I'm at the final stages of the tournament with 10-20 BBs and someone min raises or raises to 3x and I have strong holdings like AJs, AQs, AKs and decide to rip it in. I think that in these situations it doesn't make sense to just call with AQs since I have very few blinds and it'll make me have little playability with this hand postflop if I don't hit a Queen or a flush draw. But is my thinking wrong? Is it better to call in these situations with hands such as AJs, AQs, AKs, KQs or is it more profitable in the long run to move all in ?
Thanks in advance guys.

The problem I have is lets say you do call the raise and like you said don't hit the flop. You lose a chunk of your stack.
In conclusion I would have made the same decision.

Shoving over the UTG raise is the best move in my opinion. Flatting in MP puts you in an awkward spot if someone 3-bets or if the flop goes multi-way.

I think active actions will be correct. but it all depends on luck. just yesterday I got run over, I had AK open with a raise or all in. I was rearranged by AQ and lost both times, no luck, but I think the action is correct. Everything was in front of the final table with a stack of about 14bb
