I really dislike that hand. Obviously I didn't want to give up my QQ, but under normal circumstances Villian should only have AA, KK, QQ, JJ, AK and maybe maybe AQ. But since he tries to double up early in a micro SnG there is a pretty high chance that he doesn't have a monster.
Vs other regular players this is a fold I guess. But at which buy-in this would become a fold?
This is a 50c event...limiting your opponents to only AQ+ and QQ+ is pretty conservative and nowhere near correct.
Your 3bet sizing is way too large - 200 is a 5x raise! You may as well flip your hand face up - somewhere around 135 - 150 is plenty to get the job done here - when they shove over the top it is a snap call with QQ. If he has AA or KK good for him but waaaaay more often they will have Ax or possibly even lower pairs. Nothing to review here - snap call all day every day

I am never folding QQ preflop with stacks of 75BB, and certainly not when its a 50c event, and the action is from MP or later and only involve two players. I have seen a lot of bad players go crazy with 77 in a spot like, so I would much rather call with QQ than AK. AK could actually be a fold, especially if you had made your 3-bet smaller.
