I was in 34th out of 75 remaining in a 2.20 Rush Turbo Rebuy tournament with a 26K prize pool.

A guy raised 3x from UTG+2 and I flatted from the cutoff with AQs.
Flop is Q72 rainbow. He donks into me 2/3 pot and I pushed all in over top. Since it was a turbo the blinds were huge so if I raised it would have been like 2/3 of my remaining stack. And he had KK and I didnt draw out sad .

So I thought he might have KK or AA possibly QQ when he raised UTG. I really thought about folding but ended up flatting and getting pretty much the best board I could hope for with AQ.

So should have i folded pre?

That wasn't a donk bet, it was a continuation bet.

So, if you thought he had AA, KK or QQ, why did you call pre-flop? And, more importantly, what hands did you put him on after he bet on the flop? It seems that both your call and your all-in where based more on impulse than on logic. If that was the case, I think you need to generally fight those impulses.

If a bigger stack than you raises from early position, there's no need to be a hero with AQs. And there's also no need to re-raise all in with TPTK; you'll only get called by better hands.

If you call preflop you obv need to get it in with any hit on the flop. I don't know how many BBs you got left, that's an important information. If you call preflop, you can also just call the flop and then bring it in on the turn since there is nearly no scare card for you.
