bad decision?

Right at 10 BB. Not panic time yet...

Full Tilt Poker, $20 + $2 NL Hold'em Sit n' Go, 60/120 Blinds, 5 Players - Hand History Converter
BTN: 1,530
SB: 7,835
Hero (BB): 1,245
UTG: 1,650
CO: 1,240

Pre-Flop: (180) 3 5 dealt to Hero (BB)
UTG folds, CO calls 120, BTN calls 120, SB calls 60, Hero checks
Cutoff had already shoved 2 or 3 times, so his limp raised my radar here. He also has 10 BB

Flop: (480) 5 Q K (4 Players)
SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks, BTN checks
Consider leading out, but KQ hits just too many hands.

Turn: (480) T (4 Players)
SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets 240, 2 folds, Hero raises to 1,125 and is All-In,
I felt like this turn bet was weak from a decent player. The ten made the board scary, with 2 flush draws and broadway straight draws too.. I had one of them and a pair, and I though maybe the straight would give some fold equity too.

CO calls 880 and is All-In
River: (2,720) T (2 Players - 1 is All-In)
Results: 2,720 Pot

Hero showed 3 5 (two pair, Tens and Fives) and LOST (-1,240 NET)
CO showed Q J (two pair, Queens and Tens) and WON 2,720 (+1,480 NET)

Villain made call with pair and straight draw on a very flushy board, well done. Good play by him, for sure, but bad play by me?

Yes smooth call on the turn...That kind of board you are behind but at least have good outs...Anyone that shoves often PF is someone that will call all ins with any pair...Take the cheap draw, he may even check river and give you a free showdown if you do not improve.....Just my thoughts...
