I need more proof that this is a "big mistake". Some math would help your argument. AQ is too good to fold. You're more comfortable r/c why? Don't you know it's a horrible habit to R/F below 20BB? Who do we have a read on at the table who we're enticing into 3betting us? Why do you want to play a pot post flop agaisnt bad players who'll call w/ small-mid pairs, etc, when our stack is literally unplayable post flop (especially OOP) unless we hit our hand? We'll be giving up the post most times post flop. THis si all bad.
A huge % of the time everyoen will fold and ull get whats in the middle, which is a big addition to our small stack at this juncture. Sometimes well get called by middling pairs and race, sometimes a hero will call us w/ AJs,KQ, etc. sometimes well get called by AK,QQ+, but if you add up the +cEV of the situation (fold equity + hand equity against percieved calls) you can't argue w/ open shoving, especially if we add in the post flop realities of standard opening these stacks.
