      your pre-flop raise should be $1.00 (4BI), but if you are using blindsteals moves its ok to steal with 3BI

      In post flop you have a trash hand with a gutshot + overcard = 7outs. So you should make your c-bet with 2/3 of pot = $1.16
      After face a resistence by vilain you fold.

      If you steal you raise 3BB from BU with any hand your raising (incl SHC hands).
      I think the villain here is raising with any T or Q so I'm not sure you have the necessary equity to call/shove here. maybe someone has a different opinion?

      I don't see you having 8 outs to be profitable here

      I just cBet/Fold here Rahxephon ;)

      I recommend u to study the article Odds/Outs or revise it if you already read it :)

      Best regards,
