I probably make that call also in that position under those cicumstances figuring you may not get a better option since the next time around in big blind you may be stuck with 2-7 o/s as your last shot .
You also say you didn't push them allin until after flop which at that point did have a king in it... so if you think they called your raise with a good hand you could have assumed they call your raise with say A-K also to worry you... either way tough to lose with pocket Q's but under those particular circumstances I'm not sure how bad a decision it was on the other players part.... Just my opinion of course!
That was my exact point.. there isn't many hands one can actually call the SB with especially on a 3-4X BB raise. .. King,10 is a marginal hand at best.. so going up against a top 10 hand as well. So the King didnt bother her either? What was to say I had A,K.. Pocket KK's or AA's. She has to hope and wish 2 things to happen. #1 That a king comes which it did and #2 that I am not holding any of those 3 hands. That is alot of hope and wishing on her part. I just recently got busted again by someone holding an Ace,10. That person has to hope for an Ace to come cause if a 10 comes it wil get defeated by Pocket 10's JJ's QQ's KK's and AA's
To put your hopes on 1 card rather it be the Ace or the King is nuts.
Think about this an ace comes 30% of the time on the flop. Pretty sure the odds would be the same for a king. That is 3 out of 10 for simplicity. So say you call that Raise 10 times with either card you will win 3 times while losing 7. I personally like to have chips for later on when I can make a legit stand instead of having to take a chance with marginal or rag cards cause I gambled on a 30% chance.
