Yeah, they're that bad....

I'm currently finding the $25 games at Poker Stars are incredibly easy and loose. The following is somewhat of a cooler, but how can you call a push of about 180 BBs with QQ?

Poker Stars $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players - http://www.thehandconverter.com/hands/427013
The Official DeucesCracked.com Hand History Converter

MP1: $24.75
MP2: $5.00
CO: $21.75
BTN: $6.25
Hero (SB): $56.90
BB: $5.00
UTG: $25.00
UTG+1: $13.05
UTG+2: $42.75

Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with Ac Ad
2 folds, UTG+2 raises to $1, 2 folds, CO raises to $21.75 all in, 1 fold, Hero raises to $56.90 all in, 1 fold, UTG+2 calls $41.75 all in
Deep stacked, ~180BBs, is it an EV+ move to call a shove? I thought for a long time, waffling between shoving and calling here, but I wanted to iso the CO. The two players had the best cards possible - eliminating the worry of possible straights, and 2 outs each...

Flop: ($107.50) 7d 4d Ks (3 players - 3 are all in)

Turn: ($107.50) 8h (3 players - 3 are all in)

River: ($107.50) Td (3 players - 3 are all in)

Final Pot: $107.50 - Winner! 258 BBs! Weee!!!
CO shows Jh Js (a pair of Jacks)
Hero shows Ac Ad (a pair of Aces)
UTG+2 shows Qd Qh (a pair of Queens)
Hero wins $42.00
Hero wins $62.50
(Rake: $3.00)
