      I could call pre but decided to 3b vs this relative unknown villain. He doesnt look good nor bad on a small sample. No info on his tendencies.

      I couldn't do anything else exept for betting a bit bigger on the flop right?

      Preflop: A9 is definitely good enough to call pre in a HU match. 3betting can't be too bad of a play though.

      POstFlop: Standard play. We pick up equity on the Turn and there is also a scare card. I don't expect villain to fold JX too often but I think he floats his Ace high floats and mid pocket pairs like 88.

      bet size looks fine to me, perhaps you can bet 6 instead of 5 but I don't think you need to do that. We want to have a cheap bluff so half pot bet is enough.
