      Hello BGawli,

      Well why people usually ship here is the reason that he has a small stack. Which usually indicates to rather station-like opponent. Also if he had a strong hand he would just ship himself on river. :) The 8 didn't complete that many draws either. While he definitely have a lot of worse Qx hands in his range I don't mind to ship it for value there vs his stack.

      Best regards.
