      Since you didn't give any stats, i assume BU is an unknown, which means it probably isn't a good idea to resteal to begin with unless you're positive he's stealing a lot. If you do decide to resteal, you need to make it bigger to dissuade BU from flatting in position with a wide range. Around 3.5x the original raise is the general consensus on the subject out of position.

      As played on the flop, being out of position without showdown value, c-betting that flop is probably your best chance to take the pot down against anything that doesn't have a Q or a K, and you will sometimes hit your gutshot on the turn when he calls. Plus, restealing preflop isn't going to be very effective if your opponent sees that you don't follow up with a c-bet on the flop, that will give him a license to mess with you again in the future in that spot. C-bet/fold around $1.4.

      As played on the turn, the A looks like a good card but it isn't really, unless you're willing to bet at it twice. He might have Ax himself, he might have Qx, he might even have checked behind Kx for whatever reason, all those hands might be scared of the A but will probably call one bet in position just in case you're full of it, as good tags will recognize you would bet that scare card, and bad players are naturally looser on the peels. After not c-betting the flop i would just give up unless you're willing to bet both turn and river once the A comes, as that's usually what's it's gonna take to get people of anything significant.

      Hope it helps.
