  • Any Advice ?

    Could I have done anything else ?

    Looks like classic results-based thinking setting in. This was a bad beat. Your opponent had an unlikely strong holding, their holding became second-best after the flop, and when all the money went in on the turn, they drew out on you. If you want criticism on your plays that go wrong, it might be best to start with the plays that you didn't lose because of sheer luck.

    That being said, minraising is something that tends to project a lot of strength and might actually lead your opponent to find a way to get off their hand. Either they have an ace on the flop or they don't, so you might as well put them all-in there, I think. They should go all-in if they have one, and there should be no more money coming out of them if they don't.

          I think I understand what you were thinking, I am going to call this min-raise because he is just trying to steal my blind.

          The problem with that mind set, in these small tournaments IMHO, is there is no real meta game. Unless the guys name is Lars from Finland, he is probably starting out with a better hand than Q-10 os, so for me, at that part of the tournament with relative chip stacks and blinds, its a snap fold or a shove. Its never a call with Q-10os, it plays like a pig unless you get absolutely perfect cards on the flop, which you did, almost, and it has such a huge potential downside.

          On this comp I have been dealt Q-10os 132 times, and I have won with it 11.36% with a tournament losing total of -31, 338 chips. Q-10s is slightly better at 46 times for a profit of 9.698 chips.

          The point is, the hand is a total mystery, what can we beat? Did the cards that just made us two pair make the BB a straight or a draw?

          I hate queens, because they are so difficult, postflop, to play correctly IMHO.

          I turbo fold this hand pre.
