      With only 4-hands it might be a little early to start value 3-betting A9s over a halfstacked fish that looks aggressive. Since it's rush maybe you're just semibluffing tho so it's fine.

      As played postflop I don't see a way out of that one, mostly because you have no idea how he plays and he could very well show up with AJ+ or some big diamond.

      Hope it helps.
