Should I have slowed down after the turn? I was literly thinking, who calls this 3-way pot on the flop with lowest pair...

I certainly had to fold the shove but feedback is always welcome about the play...

hotdog1948 was playing VP 100 PR 75 afq 77 based on 15 hands.
I was playing VP: 21, PR: 17 based on 19 hands

It waas lowest pair with a got shot (8) and 3 diamonds. I would've probably fold but I don't know the exact situation you were in. I would have hated that flop with QQ - too many bad thinks can happen on the board, and after the second 5 and the 3 I would probably fold - the board is literally covered with losing options.

I don't know why you only made a call preflop? QQ is pretty nice hand, so I think bet will be better option. And maybe it would scare this guy with 57...

Both good points... That's why I post it here to learn of my mistakes Blink

I wouldn't risk a whole lot of my stake in this early stage of the MTT... But that said, it's in contradiction with the turn/river play.

Aww crap! Aww crap!

btw, since when are the freerolls turbo?

Interesting hand to have become embroiled in. Your raises we're way too small both preflop and on the flop which allowed hotdog (although not brilliant odds) a chance to get in relatively cheaply with a low pair and a straight draw with also potential for trips, against you showing not much strength. I accept it's a balance whether to play monster hands hard or soft but playing soft leaves more chances for your weaker opponent who calls you with a chance of improving, whereas your big push may scare them away!

i would have folded after his re-raise on the turn.
you didn't think the hand like you should have.
he didn't call the flop with only the lowest pair.
he had a straight-draw and a runner-runner flushdraw also.
