      I think you have to shove the Flop because you want to get value from draws & worser hands. I do not like calling because any Turncard and/or any Turnbet forces us to fold.

      Having that said we just check/fold the Turn because there are 2 all-in already, it makes no sense to believe that QQ is still the best hand

      Best regards,
