Texas Holdem – How to Play Q10


The ‘Cutie’ (QT) poker hand is a marginal hand to hold as your starting hand. Queen is a royal but 10 isn’t that high a kicker to support you through. So what is the best way to play when you see Queen Ten as your starting hand in the game of poker? If you go by the rules of poker, then QT ranks as low as 49 in the sheer strength of the cards. Thus play these cards with caution, on the face of things, QT looks strong but it isn’t.

Playable from late position!

QT looks good but never get married to it. In a nine player table, there is only a 14% probability that this starting hand will win. If you are in late position, play your cards but don’t get aggressive. If you see a raise, then don’t get stuck in the game, just lay the cards down and relax. Never play QT from early position especially in a full table as you might face a raise later on. Any raise will mean there are two royals or high pocket pair with someone and then you might get stuck in a lose-lose position with ‘Cutie’.

When Played at Adda52

In a Saturday Final of Texas Hold’em, player chintan2111 got 10h Qs and was the shortest stack on the table. In the eight player table, rover34 was chip leader and went all in with Ad 7d and chintan2111 called from the cut off position with just 11 big blinds. The flop was Kc 5d 4s and the rainbow didn’t get anything for either players. The turn was 4d and rover34 got a flush draw and river was 10c which got two pair for chintan2111. Thus sometimes aggression when raised with Q 10 is a good poker strategy from late position.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
