      Hey mate :)

      When being doubled I tend to do these things:
      When I am around 30 - 45bb as a stack, I tend to play the same SHC so reraise or openraise hands

      When I am having a stack bigger than 45bb (roughly), I rebuy to 100bb so I can play BSS a bit more. This means for beginners that I play QQ+ and setmine 22-JJ by calling raises like this one. TT-JJ have ''pair'' value but quite difficult for beginners imo

      So I do not really like your call here because you miss around 50bb as stack to hit a big homerun if you hit a set of nines postflop

      As played on the Flop I would definitly raise to $2.4 or even shove. If you have the intention someone CANNOT fold an Ace then shoving is obviously better since there are cards (Ten, Jack, Queen, any ) that can kill your hand, action and stack

      So in a nutshell: fold preflop as 50bb stacked then raise Flop and get it in as soon as possible!

      Best regards,
      - Gerv
