      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q T
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 8 6 A (2 players)

      BB bets $1, Hero calls $1

      River: ($3.42) Q (2 players)
      BB bets $3.60, Hero calls $3.54 and is all-in

      $10.50 pot ($0.52 rake)
      Final Board: 8 6 A Q Q
      BB showed 9 T and won $9.98 ($4.74 net)
      Hero mucked Q T and lost (-$5.24 net)

      I was a bit lost on the process of this hand tbh.
      I felt that he was trapping with an ace, thus check caling and then betting.

      I didnt feel I could get away on the river, even though I should have suspected a flush there. What do you thing?

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I do like the cbet on the flop, but why do we call the raise here with Q high? I don't get it.
      We have an easy fold here.

      On the turn I'd fold again.

      I think we should fold the river too because I really don't think he's betting any worse hands here.
