Final table situation....was it a mistake?

I am playing in a no limit unlimited rebuy tourney at my local casino. It pays 10 spots there are 8 of us left. I am 2nd chip leader with Approx. $4,200 in chips and am in the cut off spot. Blinds are 200/400 with a $50 ante so each round is costing $1,000. Everyone folds to me I look down at AQos and raise to $1,600. Button folds and the small blind thinks a minute or so and moves all in. He is chip leader with about $5,600 of the $34,000 chips in play. Big blind has only $500 but folds. If I call and go out I receive $300. My buy-in and rebuys added up to $350. Next spot up pays $500. I play with this player regularly and am fully aware that he could have any pair or have me dominated with AK. He is also quite capable (even likely) to move in here with a weak ace. I feel the chances are 50/50 that I am ahead. If I win this pot and the $9,200 in chips I feel I will win the tourney which is a $3,400 payoff. I think and call he has AKs. No help and I am out kicking myself. Hw else could I have played it. Raise less preflop maybe to $800 or $1,200? Fold to the reraise? There is $6,600 in the pot and I have to call $2,600 so I am getting 2.46:1 on my money. I am open to any advise and analysis. Steve www.dodgingpotholes.blogspot.com
