Default On the Bubble, QQ in the SB, one player\'s stack < 1bb

What do I do here? I was so lost. In an MTT this would be a lot easier. In an SNG on the bubble, I'm completely lost. I especailly didn't know what to make of the Button's call. This was definately atypical. Raise or fold had been the standard. Would having AA or KK here make a difference as to what I should do?

200/400 Tourney Texas Hold'em Game Table (NL)

Seat 7 is the button
Seat 6: UTG (165)
Seat 7: Button (1360)
Seat 9: Hero (1575)
Seat 10: BB (4900)
Hero posts small blind (100)
BB posts big blind (200)

** Dealing down cards **
Dealt to Hero [ Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] ]
UTG folds.
Button calls (200)
Hero...

I'd push. I think BB folds most of the time as does Button. Even if you lose to Button, you have just enough chips to outlast UTG.

Is this a horrendous idea?

Push, QQ is a huge fav vs any two cards, if the button beats QQ most likly he will beat utg also. If that happens your still in the money.

Really....it could mean anything. You're overthinking this.

UTG is not in this hand.

(Regardless of that, this is an easy push for me.)

This is a push in all possible situations unless 3rd place is $1,000,000 more than 4th.
