To early to have any real read. I figured since he had not shown any aggression after the flop bet he might be holding A/K, A/Q, JJ but I was wrong.

Should I have put out a smaller bet on the flop? Put out a feeler bet on the turn?

Still fairly new to SNG's around 100 or so at this point.

Yes. Reraise Queens preflop. You're not going to see AA/KK often enough to just call.

I think the turn worries me a bit. The one thing that you expect to see most on the flop is a ten calling you down, and that hit. Still, your opponents suck, and I probably lose my stack here.

After the call preflop I figured this might be mistake #1, but my hope was for someone with A/K A/Q to make their move on the flop if and when they missed.
I also went into this knowing that if the board came low I was prepared to go all the way. Don't know if that's a good thing or bad...LOL
