      I think your line is okay, but to be honest i think we'd likely be better off 4betting and getting it in preflop most of the time.

      - SB could coldcall 88-TT/AQ type of stuff there figuring he's good against the shorty and that you'll fold some of the time. If he did and you overcall, these hands won't give you much more money on most flops, either because they missed or because there are overcards on the flop, let alone the times where they draw out on you and you get stacked or you have to fold because the board is AKx.

      - SB should usually 4bet KK+, so he doesn't have it as often when he coldcalls. If he indeed flatted KK+, since he has blockers to A/K cards, the flop often won't scare you off QQ and you'll get stacked just as well as if you had 4bet preflop.

      Hope it helps.
