Default Berate my play

This is what you get when you decide to play poker instead of going to bed as you should:

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t200 (4 handed) converter

Button (t1515)
SB (t1830)
Hero (t2475)
UTG (t2180)

Preflop: Hero is BB with T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img].
<font color="#CC3333">UTG raises to t400</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, Hero calls t200.

Flop: (t900) Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG bets t425</font>, Hero calls t425.

Turn: (t1750) 2[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, UTG checks.

River: (t1750) 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
Hero checks, <font color="#CC3333">UTG bets t425</font>, Hero calls t425.


How would you play it?

I would fold preflop, I would also checkraise the flop after that weak 425 bet.

Why fold when you have a decent hand, excellent pot odds and a player who has a low effective M.

I'm curious about this fold, curtains. I don't think I'd even think twice about calling here. Is that bad?

Not to speak for curtains but yes it is bad to not think twice about putting in 200 chips which is at that moment close to 10% of your stack to play QT out of position against a raiser.

You would fold but you don't think calling is that bad? Then why would you, personally, fold?

Because in poker there are a lot of "close" decisions, things are not so clear cut. In a lot of these situations it makes sense to play according to your style.
