100% the correct play, just unlucky to run into a bigger hand there.

yeh kinda odd limping not that i see it going down any different either way if they pushed allin i doubt you was throwing away qqs, you can only play the cards your dealt its just bad luck when the have a bigger pair or even when they dont but hit trips or a flush all we can do is hope we will be the lucky ones next time

Nothing wrong with how you played this hand, this is just the sort of thing that happens in MTTs because you are often short-stacked and are involved in many preflop all-ins.

There is almost nothing that would stop me from moving all in preflop with a 10BB with QQ, it's such a strong hand to get in preflop. Occasionally you'll run into AA/KK, but that's life, you'll get may instances the other way where you have AA/KK and your opponent has QQ.
