Straddled pot, QQ 4-handed 2/5 200BB deep PF decision

1K effective stacks. 6am.

BTN straddles for $10.
V in SB, who sat down in the last 4 hands, makes it $55, BB calls who was stuck 2K and has slowly made his way back up.
Hero looks down at QdQc and makes it $210.
BTN folds. V thinks about it for 10-20 seconds and makes it $400. Hero?

Seems like a trivial all-in but I'm wondering about flatting. Thoughts?

Tell us about V. Absent more reads, I'm deciding based on the most typical range based on demographics. Against a wealthy-looking 40-ish guy from a gambly culture, I'm loving this spot. Vs a 20-something hoodie and headphone wearing wanna-be pro I'm not in love with it, but likely still shoving (having him fold AK here would be a great result). Against an OMC I'm snap-folding AINEC.

Really don't see the merit in flatting against most Vs. Why are you considering it?

+1. not a trivial all-in at all.

i'd only flat under extraordinary circumstances.

Agreed, not a trivial jam by any means at 2/5.

Super strong configuration here w/ BTN straddle. I'd probably let it go based on sizing. I think AK flats or jams, that sizing is very inviting and likely KK+.

Come-on bud QQ 4 handed for a buyin can't consider folding. 210 seems a little small.

What makes you think we're 4-handed?

Oh. Lol me.

Yeah, 4-handed QQ is one hell of a hand.

Lionhat, that happened in your other thread too. I missed that we're short handed in both due to it only being in the title. i would recommend making it clear in your post, not just in the title, that it's short handed.

4-handed GII
