Hmm it looks like on the turn one or other of the opponents has an 8. Either the raiser or the guy calling (slow playing?) behind. I think therefore our hand has less outs than it appears (Optimistically we may think 3 Queens, 3 Tens and 9 Spades) however if someone already has an 8 then the Queen and Tens do not improve our hand enough and the 2 of spades gives an 8 the full house. Giving us only 8 outs.

Pot odds: \$0.70/\$3.00 = 0.23
Hand odds: 8/46 = 0.17

As the chance of making our hand is less than our pot odds I think perhaps we should fold to the turn bet.

However I think the river is probably a check/fold if we assume the BB and BU have both hit some part of this board.

In the heat of the moment I would probably block bet here (and called the turn). Its a shame we don't have the time for detailed analysis mid-game.

Over to the judges.
