      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q A
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, BTN folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds

      Final Board: K 2 T 9 8
      Hero mucked Q A and won $1.43 ($0.73 net)
      CO mucked and lost (-$0.70 net)

      villain is a complete unknown, no hands at all.

      i think AQ is strong enough to flat pre vs a standard CO range...

      on the flop i have some equity so i decide to check call since people will shut down on a lot of turns. on the turn i decided to go for a checkraise since i can rep a straight and some sets but once that failed i went for a bet on the turn since now his range is probably weak pairs like A9 and PP from 33-77 that will fold. especially with such a coordinated board...

      no sure about my overall plan here.

      I would usually 3bet this preflop.

      On the flop, since it is quite dry, and we do have some equity, calling is fine.

      Against unknown, I think check/raising the turn is close, but the idea is good overall.

      Against unknown, I don't really have much about betting the river here. We are likely to take the pot here quite often and we could make better hands to fold.
