After an early limp and a shove from a stack covering me, should I be calling with QQ here or is it a very poor ICM decision to call with a stack as big as mine?

I have already seen this guy do this twice already in the game holding KQ and a weak ace. He reshoved quite a bit.

Hi sjb,

Folding this spot would be the very poor ICM decision. Reshove with 99+, AK.

Thank you Dave, straight after the hand I felt I had made a very poor call but good to see it confirmed that it was the right call, although I played around with the hand ranges a bit as I thought that you had the shovers range down as being too wide - it still suggested calling with JJ+ though. Never used that tool before - looks good. Just frustrating when not one but two aces hit on the turn then river!
