I like your play here.

The opp shoves from UTG+1, knowing that there are a bunch of players left to act, so they should like their hand. If they wanted to shove light, they should have done that when they had position, not with a lot of opps yet to act.

Q7o is just barely ahead of a random hand and the opp doing this OOP should have better than a random hand. If you range the opp on any pair, any A or any broadway, you're a 2-1 underdog.

Due to this, along with the fact that if you call and lose, you're down to about 8BB, I'm mucking and staying with the 10BB stack and looking for a situation to shove when I'm ahead in the hand.
