      Final Pot: $20.05.

      Results follow:

      BB shows a flush, ten high(8h Th).
      Hero shows a pair of aces(Qs As).

      BB wins with a flush, ten high(8h Th).

      After his resteal I was putting him on A9+ or KQ or some pocket pair, so on the flop I played way ahead/way behind. Dont know if call on the turn was correct, but he could do it even with worse Aces, since 3/4 bet would commit him anyway. I was pretty surprised when he showed his hand though and i made note on him.

      I think you can´t fold your tp hand, so I´d prefer getting it all-in on the flop, by raising to 4$ or just shoving
      He would shove/call there worse hands and I think he would not barrel turn too often with air, so better to get all-in when you´re likely ahead
