By looking at the final pot size and finding the break chip even equity needed will have to make a decision.
You are the last to call or fold, which is great, so if you call the pot will be
Final pot if called: 1290 + 1000 + 1000 + 8479 + 8479 = 20248
the equity needed to break even is the amount to call / final pot = 5479 / 20248 = 0.27 = 27%
(It is near the bubble but I would only add a small amount for any, say 1%)

QQ vs (QQ+,AKs) = 28.5%

If the AKs gets in you are fine to call. I would think that JJ or even TT & AKo could stray into the villain range. I think you should make the call.

With only 59 hands you can't tell too much from the stats, V. could be a tight reg or just card dead but a range of QQ+ is too pessimistic.
