This is a discussion on $0.55 NLHE MTT Turbo: $$0.55 NLHE MTT Turbo: Can someone explain how a 10Q has a better percentage than AQ? within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Hand Analysis section; Ok, so I just busted out of a $0.55 turbo mtt tourney. I was the BB with AhQc, the EP2 shoves 6bb all in with
You have 2 outs to win the hand outright, because if the flop is A24, AK still beats you. However, the player with QT has 3 outs to win the hand outright, as if the flop is T24, their 10 is not dominated.

The best hand in preflop is AK and in order to win a pot you and EP2 need to improve your hands and only Q improves your hand, because A is shared with AK. So you need to catch a Q, and there are only 2 of them in the deck. At the same time, in order to win EP2 needs to catch T, since Q is shared with you, it doesn't help him. He needs T and there are three tens in the deck. So, EP2 actually is more likely to improve his hand, since Ten is not shared with anyone. The fact that his hand is weaker in beginning is irrelevant, since both of you can't win shit until you improve anyway.
