      Hi Poker Pros....

      I did this play on Pokerstars...kindly critique and advice so I may improve.
      I kind of think it is almost inevitably going to be an all-in either ways, but let me know how I could have played it BETTER. Thank you.
      Here it is:

      First of all better use some kind of converter...

      $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      7 Players

      Hero (UTG) ($13.15)
      UTG+1 ($51.15)
      MP ($29.70)
      CO ($25.20)
      BTN ($26.35)
      SB ($25.35)
      BB ($47.15)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 7 players) Hero is UTG Q:diamond: Q:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, CO raises to $3.25, 3 folds, Hero calls $2.50

      Flop: 10:diamond: 2:club: 3:heart: ($6.85, 2 players)
      Hero goes all-in $9.90, CO calls $9.90

      Turn: 8:diamond: ($26.65, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: 8:heart: ($26.65, 2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $26.65
      Hero shows two pair, Queens and Eights
      Q:diamond: Q:heart:
      CO shows a full house, Tens full of Eights
      10:heart: 10:club:

      CO wins $25.35 (net +$12.20)

      Hero lost $13.15

      Situation depends on CO 3-bet range and players abillity to see your hand strengh (UTG raise) If he is agressive I would shove PF.

      You are playing midstacked so you dfid not loose much by going all in with an over pair however an over pair is not a great hand and you want to play it slowly post flop especially if yuo were full stacked.

      Def agree with Harley, coulda just pushed all in when you were ahead. The thing is, when you push on a flop like that, there are few hands which you can beat that would call (JJ, maybe 99 or a fish with AK). If he had KK or AA you'd have been just giving your money away.
