      Don't really know if I was right to fold here. There are some hands that might beat me but his move was a bit too strong for a made hand I think.
      Later in the tourney I discovered him to be very loose preflop.

      Hi Hautjob!

      I think it's better to fold here. He can have a flush draw as well as a J or pocket deuces or another small pocket pair. To find that out you have to risk your tournament life, which isn't a good idea imo. Just fold and wait for a better spot.

      Good luck at the tables!

      ok puschkin wanna discuss? oO

      i'd recommend a call, giving the action Hautjob could be on anything, so his play on flop works against everything

      AJ/AA/KK/QQ are the hands Hautjob has to call, all other hands he has to fold against this play, so kind of a good play by the opponent

      so tell me, why should the opponent shove a hand, which has QQ beat?
      he could easily get more chips on the turn or the river out of Hautjob if he has J, this play only costs him chips, if he has QQ beat

      if it's a bluff or a semi bluff with maybe 88 or something, it's a not so bad play, cause hautjob has to fold many hands that didn't hit the flop

      i'd tend to a call in this spot

      missing informations are buyin/playerleft/already itm?

      I am porbably not as experienced as you are, but my guess would also be that he had AK or small pocket pair and missedthe flop.

      To me its always a kind of tilty play which ppl use in exactly these type of situations. So, early in a tournament I would have probably called. However close to the money I wouldn't have.

      I think i agree with horror here, i'm not folding QQ in this position. His play definitely seems like he missed the flop and is trying to come over the top of you.

      I find its 50/50...

      There are alot of chips in the pot late in tourney and have found situations were oppent goes all in with the best hand to make you think they have nothing to get u to call...

      It depends on the player and how u have seen him play all tournament...
