Default A-rag good here?

$20, 45 person sng. Blinds 200/400 + 25, 8 handed

In the previous hand, Villian is UTG+1 and raises to 1200. I have 1700 in the BB with AQ. I shove, he has 44. I hit and double up and now have about 3800.

Next hand, villian insta-shoves 1300 from UTG. Folds to me in the SB and i have A5os. BB has about 5500.

Push or fold?

UTG's range is literally any 2... occasionally any 1.

edit: Good tourney structure, BTW.

Yeah, the 45 person sngs on Stars play like a normal sng with 10 min blinds.

I realized after I posted this how rediculously simple this is. I sent it to a few friends who thought it might be a close decision, so I just needed a sanity check.

Change the effective stacks to like 8BBs and it becomes a more interesting spot.

I agree. So if villian insta-shoves 8bb from utg in this spot, what range do we need? This all is assuming we have no other reads on villian other than he raised in EP with 44 on the previous hand.

His range is probably any pair, any A, most Ks, Q7+, J8+, T8+, 98+, 67... or something similar-ish.
