i think i just shove since you aren't very deep (why didn't you buy in with maximum btw?) and QQ in 6max is like KK in fullring

If he has AA or KK, $37.50 seems like a slightly big raise.

But, the re-raise to $37.50 means he either has a big hand (in his opinion) or he thinks yours isn't that strong and he can push you off it.

If he has AA would he re-raise that much, to try make you go away, or try to reel you in? Probably the latter, IMO. So, he probably doesn't have A's.

If he had KK, he might raise that much, in case you had an ace, to try win the hand there and then. That would be the hand to worry about.

If he had QQ/JJ/TT etc. he would probably re-raise that much to try win the hand. He could also have AK/AQ and think he is in a race situation.

With his chip stack, and how you described his play, it looks like he has come to dominate the table.

If I could afford it - risking losing the $90 - I'd probably re-raise all-in. Personally, I think you probably have the best hand - but who knows how people play? He could have KJ and call and flop a K......

The "smart" play might be to call, hope an A or K doesn't flop, and then push all-in. You'd still lose to A's or K's but I don't think he'd have A's.

Then I'd push. I'd say he either has JJ, TT or AK. I'd expect a call.
