Question

Late stages of a live tournament, folded to you in the small blind. You raise to 1,200 with 8 8. Big blind calls. Your image is tight but loose with late-position opens. BB is standard TAG on the looser side. He's aware of your image. Flop Q Q 5. You bet 2,000. He instantly shoves for 5,500 total.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Call

Your opponent is unlikely to play a queen like this. This is most likely a complete draw or a flush draw at very best. With 2k invested it only costs another 3,500 to see a showdown. Even if you lose this hand you are in decent shape. So make the call and expect to be ahead.
