This is a discussion on $55 NLHE MTT: QQ vs tight player shove pre-flop within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; Winning Poker Network (Yatahay) - 125/250 NL (8 max) - Holdem - 7 players
UTG+1: 21.92 BB (VPIP: 25.61, PFR: 3.66, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 82)
7 players post ante of 0.1 BB, Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB
Pre Flop:(pot: 2.2 BB)Hero has Q Q
fold, fold, fold, CO raises to 2.6 BB, BTN raises to 46.58 BB and is all-in
If I was deeper then this would be snap fold for me, but having only ~12 effective big blinds and still pretty far from bubble I don't know if I should fold or call here.
If I was in this situation, I think that I am calling it off. If you have ran into KK or AA here, then you have to just see it as a cooler. With so few BBs, this is a premium spot, and I feel that passing here isn't going to profitable in the long run. Even if you're up against AK suited here, I feel that you need to take that flip. QQ is too strong here, tens + is a call for me.
All that being said, maybe you had a read on this player, and you know a fold is right.

i would call according to the stack sizes. i dont think villian make that raise with aa or kk. she will play slowly the premium pocket pairs. folding is not making any sense for me here.
