      Hi, I'm no expert but I don't like this play very much. You're giving the BB a chance to see the flop which might show one or even more overcards and you would have a tough decision then. And chances are the BB would call your push with 88 anyways without you taking this kind of risk.
      If you would like them to think that they have fold equity a raise to 250 would be better IMO.

      I really like the section of the forum you chose for posting in BTW. Do you consider this to be more of a Promotion or a Community event? (no offence intended just teasing...) :D

      I think you played hand badly. When you limp with QQ you risk that you might get some more limpers or raiser and callers. And if that happens you might be in situation where you push all in but your opponents get great odds to call and you might be facing more than 1 opponent. And with such short stack i think you would get called anyway. So as any raise would commit us i would just push directly in.

      Please don't limp with raising hands.
      Your just giving your opponent a chance to suck out.

      if they're all in crazy, then they would go all in with your raise also.

      limp with 8bb with QQ ... no
