I definitelly dont agree. KK and QQ are also possible for call, and against some of those players also AK.
Unless you have great edge post-flop (and from first post of this thread, the Wshanor has no edge postflop) then you just have to take every +EV spot preflop. I dont know what MTTs you are playing, but in mine you can easily see preflop all in with 4 players with cards like TT,JJ,AQ,AK.
So QQ,KK still have great pot equity against average players preflop all-ins.
And dont forget that usually in such spots you already have 4-6BBs already in the pot, making it even more +EV call compared to fold.
There are very rare situations where Im folding QQ, usually its someone seting trap from early position. Then Im putting him on KK/AA and often Im right.
(its even more rare, considering that I have said myself many times that I should fold and made stupid call anyway)
