      I would raise to ~$40 here. If there is another raise it's an easy fold because of the following rule: "The fourth preflopraise normally means aces."

      Good luck at the tables!

      Not too sure since it is hard not to become tied to the pot in any case.

      If you get action after your push you will most likely be up against AA/KK. Your QQ become less valuable than a mid-SC in this case. Your best case is after two folds and the SB decides to play his AK.

      Flat calling allows you to fold pretty easily PF if required at the risk of playing a multi-way pot OOP.

      Min-raising and hoping to play HU versus SB is possible. Folding PF becomes a bit ugly though.

      The last two options virtually dominate the first since in the latter cases second-best hands are more likely to put additional money in the pot.
