      You have only 36 hands on him and his PFR is only 8, so I believe there would be no mistake to fold preflop, but if you however believe he's stealing(I as a short stack get that a lot even from SB) then I think preflop push would be the way to go.

      With only 36 hands I don't trust his ATS stat to be accurate enough yet to make a resteal. Nice try though.

      When learning to resteal I think its somewhat easier to play by just pushing your stack rather than doing these 3bets to something like 40% of your stack that get you in tricky spots.

      For information on sample sizes for stats I suggest you read the 3rd Review down in Xarry's Coaching Review thread.

      Hi DejaLoin,


      Normally in a blindbattle against Unknown, I tend to fold Nines here, why risk 20bb for 1bb?
      If you decide to RRaise him in a blindbattle, I tend to add a bit extra (0.5bb) for extra FE.

      Also Nines is more of a preflop hand so actually I would play this in 2 different ways:
      #1 Resteal All-in , high variance
      #2 Reraise to 9bb and shove on the Flop
      #3 A good fold
      I am inclined to make a fold here without stats

      As played I should call his bet as his holding can mean anything + paired Ace board + why should he go all-in (70BB) when A) your stack is only 11bb left and B) the pot is 18bb ??

      fold 99 against a SB first in raise?
      are you drunk? ;) you dont "defend 1bb", you attack the 4bb in the pot when you are MILES ahead against his range

      easiest push ever!
      and please push, resteal as a push always.

      So when you push 99, you push AJ/AQ/KQ as well ?

      A default resteal recommended for beginners is 88+, AJ+

      I got taught that ATS 10 , AQ+,TT+ is always +EV for beginners. but since most unknowns have ATS 15, I can agree but I dislike it for beginners, also there is no resteal article for beginners afaik.

      I think most of the beginners can quite fast achieve silver status, where they find article of steals and resteals...

      ...I also think before you achieve 100 PS points you shouldn't think about steals and resteals.

      But there is my coaching and my hand evaluations ;)

      I can also write a 1-line-article if you want :D

      "Resteal with 88+, AJ+. Thanks."
