Knockout tourney AA

38 left everyone in the money already. 7 handed atm. Blinds are 1500-3000. Average stack 50,000. I just doubled up to 78,000 in chips from a few hands before.
I get AA on the button. It is folded to me. The big blind is the chip leader with 159,000 and has been fairly/slightly aggressive. I raise to 19,000. SB folds. BB chip leader calls.
Flop:
Q J 10 rainbow.

BB goes all in.

Call or fold? And why

Re: Knockout tourney AA

Turbo snap call and hold vs KQ. Interesting sizing preflop.

Re: Knockout tourney AA

I was trying to be transparent preflop. I had more chips than most at the table besides the BB and I was happy with just doubling up previously and my AAs had been getting cracked a few times in the past day or two so I was ready for the worst, figured if he was going to call and make me nervous Id at least make it worth it for myself. The only person I didnt want to face was him cuz he had me covered. I ended up calling. He had AQ and I took it down and proceeded to win the tourney. I was just trying to see if this was a case of overplaying aces or if I made the right move.

LOL - this is usually OMC with JJ/TT. I guess now I'll also have to allow that AA technically can be played this way as well.
