      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero) = ($8.97)
      BU = ($5.53)
      SB = ($3.98)
      BB = ($2.79)
      MP3 = ($5.72)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A :heart: , Q :club: .
      MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BB raises to $0.45, Hero calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.92) 9 :spade: , 3 :heart: , 2 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.57, BB calls $0.57.

      Turn: ($2.06) T :diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($2.06) A :diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.77, Hero calls $1.77.

      Final Pot: $5.60.

      Stats were only over 25 hands, so no use. It was his first re-steal.

      This was a hand with several interesting decisions for me, I felt, and I'm pretty sure I got at least one wrong. My questions for this hand are:

      1) What should I have done in response to my opponent's resteal? I flatted, but would folding be better? I don't think 4-betting is correct here.

      2) Should I have checked the turn, or made a turn bet?

      3) The obvious: Should I have called the river shove?

      Hello Salivanth,

      Preflop: Actually against his stack I would rather 4bet and get it in or just fold and while he has been rather passive then I might even at some spots prefer folding.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to do. I wouldn't bet the turn as you if you are asking that. And yes I would as well Call the river shove as you Called preflop.

      Best regards.
