      According to the preflop action, I expect to stand against at least one AA or KK on NL10, maybe both. Is it ok to fold, or should I shove?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):
      $24.01
      MP2:
      $16.21
      MP3:
      $10.00
      CO:
      $19.80
      BU:
      $10.00
      SB:
      $10.67


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      MP2 raises to $0.40, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.40, BU folds, SB raises to $1.20, Hero calls $1.10, MP2 raises to $4.00, CO folds, SB calls $2.80, Hero folds.

      Hi meridius!

      Folding here is good idea. SB flats could mean KK/AA and trying to trap 3rd player to get his money in... with KK/AA and POT size money will go on flop in anyway and you may be only drawing to A only (~15% on flop).

      Other option I would consider in this hand is 4-bet here yourself and try to ship it in preflop. It should be +EV game considering all dead money and other players hand ranges.

      Regards
