      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.8 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:spade: , Q:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, 5 folds, BB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.85) 7:spade: , T:spade: , Q:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.85) J:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.60 (All-In), BB calls $1.20.

      River: ($4.05) A:diamond:

      Final Pot: $4.05

      I thought after hitting my third Q on the flop, no card higher than a Q and only a slight straight or flush danger, that I would check and see if he maybe bets on the turn to reraise him...

      Then a third spade comes up, he bets and I reraise all-in.

      Should I have just bet on the flop or even seen that my Qs were beat?

      You made a huge mistake by not betting the flop. The board is extremly drawy. Bet 2/3/ push.

      There are very few situations where we should slowplay with a shortstack. Especially in HU situation, since it will likely scare our opponents)
