Top pair no kicker, I just suck at making decisions with this hand. This was my last hand on the Poker Stars Sunday Million $500+30
PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t300 (9 handed)
saw flop|saw showdown
Preflop: Hero is SB with 4h, Qh.
2 folds, MP1 calls t300, MP2 calls t300, 3 folds, Hero completes, BB checks.
Flop: (t1200) Qc, 5d, 6c (4 players)

Final Pot: t14350
Main Pot: t14350 (t14350), between MP2 and Hero. > Pot won by MP2 (t14350).
Results in white below:
Hero has 4h Qh (one pair, queens).
MP2 has Td Qd (one pair, queens).
Outcome: MP2 wins t14350.
Preflop: Completing the SB was fine with 2 callers
Flop: It is the first puzzle, Do you check-fold any time you flop TPNK on a multiway pot?, if MP1 or MP2 bet, I most probably fold, but since the bet came from the last person to act, my hand may be good, therefore the call; Is a check-raise better? Is leading better?, because of the size of my stack, Is it the check-raise all in better if I'm not folding?, IS the call better and then shove any turn?
Turn: I think it was a total mistake, if I'm going all in, it's better to just lead all in, instead of check raising without any fold equity. He'd probably called anyway.
Meh, I should just fold the flop all the time until I learn how to play TPNK.
I went 0 for 6 this Sunday, I feel a little rusty, but the good thing is I'm playing.
