Default Late in 6 max Tourney - Risk clash with big stack?

About 19 players left out of starting 1088. I'm 2nd or 3rd in chips, having been in the top 20 pretty much throughout the whole tourney. The top 4 stacks are well ahead of the field.

Button has been playing tight recently or has not been catching any cards. I rate him as one of the better players left in the tourney. We're currently 4 handed at this table.

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t3000 (4 handed)

Hero (t215895) antes 300 bb 3000
UTG (t113301) antes 300
Button (t222690) antes 300
SB (t140506) antes 300 sb 1500

Pot 5700

Preflop: Hero is BB with Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Button raises to t9300</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t24300</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Button raises to t222690</font>, Hero???

4-handed QQ is really a monster I could not lay it down here. I think buttons range even if he is 4-betting is wider than KK+, at least something like TT+,AQ+ and he might set you on a resteal which enlarges his range even more. I would call - you have a good edge to be in front and if you win this one you can easily go for winning this tournament.
