      I'd fold this unless the guy proved he's spewy or overly aggressive.
      More times then not you'll be beat here or he's got a lot of equity. You didn't invest all that much. fold, next hand ... ?

      Hard to say without a read on the player since his play obviously doesn't make any sense whatsoever, sometimes you'll see strong flush draws, less often a top pair, rarely sets and straights because they usually like to slowplay with those but some donks will shove them anyway.

      If you have reason to believe that he is nuts and could do that with just about any piece of the board then calling is fine. If not, you're likely better off folding having invested only 5bb, that's not a good flop for your QQ and this is an extremely high variance call.

      Hope it helps.
