      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $14.25
      Hero:
      $9.25

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:club: , 9:club:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB calls $1.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($3.50) 5:diamond: , 4:spade: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.20, SB calls $2.20.

      Turn: ($7.90) T:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      River: ($7.90) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $5.50, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $7.90

      I can't push since the hand is close to but not in the range of the sklanskychubukov numbers (KQs for 20 BB from BU). Should I have bothered stealing with this 3 BB raise or fold?

      When you post stealing hands post SB and BB stats as well.

      SB seem pretty loose, so I wouldn't bother stealing here with marginal hand.

      IMO not enough hands on opponent to make a proper read let alone steal.

      Btw shouldn't you just check/fold when called and your hand misses everything? C-betting here doesn't seem profitable

      I make a delayed c-bet here but generally I just fold this one if BB/SB are loose even with K9s :)
