      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, T.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 2 folds, MP1 calls $0.35.

      Flop: ($1.05) Q, Q, 2 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.00, MP1 calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($3.05) 7 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      River: ($5.05) 9 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $2.00, Hero raises to $6.52, MP1 raises to $9.55, Hero calls $0.98.

      Final Pot: $22.1.

      Results follow:

      MP1 shows a full-house, nines full of queens(9h 9d).
      Hero shows three of a kind, queens(Qd Ts).

      MP1 wins with a full-house, nines full of queens(9h 9d).

      is it wrong to slow play such a hand? what could have been done better?

      Depends how loose that guy is, his bet sizing doesn't really feel me with confidence that he has anything strong enough to call me down with, so i don't really mind letting him spew into me. If he's limp/calling a ton, like enough to have any Qx, stacking worse Qx hands probably trumps the value we get from him bluffing, in which case you likely need to just raise the turn and go with it.

      As played you got 2 outed, shit happens ;)

      Hope it helps.
