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.

Testimonials From Our Players

I am a late entrant into poker world and at 43 years of age, double the age of a lot of players on the tourney circuit. I am a Private Equity Fund Manager and poker is a passion for me!! I have now been playing for over 4 years now - both cash and tournament games. My background in investing made me adapt to the game fast. The approach of studying the game through books, courses (Nick Petrangelo, raiseyouredge) online videos and bit of coaching from Prabhat Mukherjea.. all played a part in preparing me for this. This win is a testimony that poker is not gambling and hard work pays off.

I am extremely happy at winning the ATOC ME. it is apt that my first big tournament win comes on adda52 where I started my poker journey about 4 years back.
