      no. I don`t think you can fold it, but you should push pre-flop. After 3+ limpers its a standard play, especially from SB.

      as xylere said. always look what stack you will have on the flop if you make your standard raise preflop and the other(s) call. if it's slightly smaller, bigger or potsize on the flop it's better to push preflop in most of the cases, not given your opponents the possibility to get a better hand against yr strong pp. In a lot of times you will not lay down your QQ anyway postflop so let's take out the hands that are behind your QQ preflop but may improve on the flop.

      @xylere just wanted to explain this, because it took some time for me to understand this. not to do this kind of play, but why. so I thought it could be helpful.
