      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $24.94
      MP2 (Hero):
      $10.35
      MP3:

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 9, 9.
      Hero raises to $0.75, MP3 calls $0.75, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.85) 3, J, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, MP3 calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.85) 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2.25, Hero raises to $6.00, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.1.

      I didn't have a sample with villain, only 9 hands but he had 11/11. How would you play this hand vs an unknown?

      The table was super tight with 1 raiser, occasional callers and positional abuse. I was pretty sure from the beginning that he is not folding on this super dry board and remembered what burek2000 advised against float happy opponents.

      The problem is that I'm left with super little after in my stack after check/raise. Should I shove it or bet and fold what's left? Should I raise smaller, like a minraise?

      Not sure what he advised but

      I would check/shove yes if your remaining stack is $8.25 on the Turn. You can also double barrel for value but if you think he is betting a lot when you check, c/rai is better
