I presume you mean that you hold the T,4? I think a strong possibility that the holder of QQ would raise pre-flop...forcing you out with that hand.Even if not,holding bottom pair on the flop,with a Q on the board,would usually see me fold.If it was checked down and i hit trip 4's on the river,then that could get me in trouble against a slowplaying QQ.But it depends a lot on position,who's in the pot,etc.
I must admit ive seen many times when ive lost to a suckout,or even hit my flush or straight on the river!
But its all about giving them the odds
to call....if they're chasing a flush or straight and your not betting enough to force them out....chances are they will hit on the turn or river.
If you are betting big and they're still calling against their odds,and hitting their hand....well poker definitly sucks sometimes!
