I'm back with another (probably) easy question

$30k Guaranteed. Have 35BBs but my table is short with big stack players. I didn't really want to go out on a flip this early because the players in this tournament seemed pretty passive to late position blind stealing. However, I thought the player who shoved PF wouldn't have played AA this way, maybe KK this way. Is it wishful thinking to put AQs in his range here (along with 99+)?

You guys call here?

Thanks a lot for your input

    If you feel you have a skill edge that you want to have time to play out, folding is perfectly fine here.

    How far are you from the bubble?

    How aggressive is your table?

    As Kat said, if you feel they are better than you, take the flip. If not wait for a spot to be the aggressor.

    Thanks for the feedback. The bubble was pretty far off. I thought I had a decent skill edge, or at least awareness of blind stealing, up until that point. But as the field was getting smaller I was starting to see some familiar regs. I also had the smallest stack on the table, so I thought I might start to get played back at a lot preflop and would soon be down to under 30bbs.
