$25 SNG 6 Max: AKs Early Gets Mini 3-Bet

I’m transitioning from full ring and dabbling in a few of these 6-max turbos. Finding far more interesting hands come up early levels because its short handed. I guess at full ring I have a better feel for what range of hands an opponent has to have to play back at me and I’m more willing to fold marginal hands because of the equity you gain from idiots eliminating themselves early.

6-max is different though, I feel like I’m being 3-bet and put in more tough spots in early blind play. For instance, this hand is only a few hands into the tournament so no real reads. Am I happy just to shove here? Maybe more interestingly, what would you do in this spot with TT or AQ?
