      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $2.00
      BB:
      $3.98
      MP2:
      $5.22
      MP3:
      $17.73

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , 9:club:
      MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 calls $0.10, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BB raises to $3.98 (All-In), 3 folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.40

      BB seems quite aggressive for the small hand sample size that i have here. What kind of hands do I need to call a resteal in this position?

      Also i raised those 2 MP players with huge VPIP - should i give up on getting them to fold with such a marginal hand and just fold or complete in this position?

      Hey RaWRpewpew,

      on nl10 I would advise you to stick to basic SSS. By raising marginal hands like A9s you find yourself in marginal situations that are hard to play, specially if you're new to SSS/poker in general.

      With two limpers I would complete Axs and play for 2-pair+ or nutFD on the flop.

      As played, you have to fold to BB's 3-bet, your A9s will often be dominated by better Ax hand.
