      I would rather C/F or Bet/Fold since you really don't have everything or Push pre-flop.

      First you need to get your stack back to $2.00 before you play the hand.
      Then you should bet 3x a raise and 4x with 1 callers (5x with 2 callers 6x with 3 callers etc.)
      So bet $0.80 pre-flop.
      However, since you only would have $0.90 left, you can also push pre-flop, because you will be all-in on the flop after your continuation bet anyway.

      So to get more fold equity, I would say pushing this hand preflop (especially with your current stack of $1.50)

      Push preflop is the best option. It maximize your fold equity and assures, that you see 5 cards to improve.
