      I dont really like flop stab, especially with this size. It costs too much, and accomplishes very little. Few (if any) better hands would fold, even AQ/AK could easily ch/call once on this low and dry board, so we can only fold out worse hands mainly, and get called by better.

      We risk 1.74/2.5 ~ 70% of the pot, and even two live overcards like Q:sT only has ~30% equity in the pot. So not a great risk/reward ratio.

      Board: 9:club: 5:heart: 2:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      BU     70.81%  70.81%   0.00% { AdJd }
      BB     29.19%  29.19%   0.00% { QsTs }

      River sucks, cause AQ/AK are definitely in his range, but as his preflop resteal range has been very wide so far, and maybe he could even try to bluff and rep the Ace with a hand like 77, I think I'd call here, but not happy about it.

      I would not stab flop too without a plan. U probably need to fire muliple times to fold villain out of AK and AQ.

      As played he does have many Ak AQ combos but i dont think u can fold here.
