re: Poker & Folding Pocket Queens
Doesn't tell us what the big-chip table image was up to that point but I'd have to guess that it was 50/50 steal attempt v. good hand.
With at least 8 left, paying top 5, I would also have folded. I think you'll find a lot of replies who say you came to win... call the all-in. A lot of hands beat QQ and don't think I would put my tourney life on the line at that point, 3 off the money.
Coming off the BB, not short-stacked, I would wait for a better shot than busting out pf on the ladies. They look cute, but they aren't that powerful.
