Can you clarify situation, there are only 4 players seated but the blinds are 300/600? Were you down to the final 4, or was this some sort of 6 seater tournament? Seems odd that you are the shortstack but still have 23BB.

I don't think it's possible to fold 10 10 4-handed on a 7 high board, this was one of those action hands that I always seem to be on the wrong end of too. You should be looking to double up here, and I can't see you will get a better spot than this.

Considering we're OOP I just shove over his bizarre preflop button limp-reraise I think. As played, with TT, 23BB and a nondescript flop like that, you're going broke one way or another here, as villain will have missed overcards more often than AA-JJ.

Don't be results-oriented - even if two players play their hands perfectly one of them still has to lose. :)

Since villian reraise you on pre-flop I would immediately put him on a pocket pair. It would have been really hard to lay down 1010 on the flop but I would be more caurious in the future.

MTT (Multitable Tournament) separated into two tables.. 11 players left, I think there were 2 tables, 6 players and 5.

The hand right before, I had aces and the exact same guy had AK. I doubled up.

The very next hand he gets aces against my tens and gets it all back, eliminating me. Cute.

I agree with you baconn, with his funny limp re-raise preflop, I should've suspected something was up.

If only the flop didn't come so perfect, and it wasn't 5 way, and he wasn't the guy who just doubled me up with AK.

almost impossible to get away from after the flop came out but possible to fold pre-flop. one alarm that would have gone off for me is he limped and then re-raised with close to 1/5 of his stack this is a very common play for Queens-Aces, Still really hard to get away from I wouldn't beat your self up over it
