AQ call shove

      Guy UTG has been very tight. Is there any reason to fold AQ to his open shove ? this was 12 left in the big $5.50 but my stack was I think 11th/10th so can I fold AQ ? the money only really starts to get really tempting in the last 5/6 and players stacks on both tables are even enough that no one is taking big risks. lots of walks and uncalled min raises. could I have let this one slide and used an 18bb stack to force some folds with other hands when folded to ? or call and gamble for more competitive stack ?
