      Flop: ($1.3) 9, Q, 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.90, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Hey bubzeh,

      According to the SHC one resteals with AQo. Things makes it a bit difficult because you are OOP however I just reraise 3+x times where x=amount of callers the raise.

      If that size is >40% of my stack, I just go all-in

      So preflop I would make it $0.6

      As played I would just cbet $0.7 because the board is so dry

      Checking on the Flop has also it merits if he is aggresive

      Best regards,
      Gerv
