      Against one opponent you should usually cbet about 2/3 pot as a bluff even if you didn`t hit the flop. When your opponent calls or raises, give up the bluff and check/fold, so turn and river are ok.

      On the flop you could have raised around $0.90, because you give your opponent good odds to call otherwise.

      Hey Teyiebuns

      I reraise to $0.7 preflop and cBet like $1-$1.1 there, the betsize you have chosen is like 50%-ish which is too low in my opinion

      The rest is okay, you only have Ace high

      I dont understand:

      PreFlop UTG made a minraise. I are taught that Minraise=2limpers. Therefore the PreFlop reraise is (4+2)= 6 Bigblinds which he did. If we consider UTG's minraise as a proper raise then we should fold because AJs is not part of our reraise range.

      On the flop there is no flush draw. Only KJ or J9 will have OESD. Essentially it is a dry flop. We are taught that on a dry board HU we should bet 1/2 pot.

      What do i have wrong?
