      Hero showed A Q and lost (-$14.56 net)
      UTG showed 7 7 and won $28.52 ($13.96 net)

      is it okay to get it in here? villain is playing quite loose and is pretty bad. i don't think he has to be too strong here and i think he can do this with some Jx hand in which case i have a fair few outs against him.

      If you don't want to fold vs a shove I'd bet quite a bit bigger, just like you would if you were thinking about not giving him good odds to draw on you with the nuts. In that case you also get way better odds vs a shove and can call given your outs and someof the weaker hands in his range like KQ that can shove in, which you beat ofc.
