Playing a 9 hand in Blackjack

What would be the best strategy when playing a nine hand in a Blackjack game?  Hitting your hand would be your best bet whenever the dealer has a 2, 7, 8, 9, 10 or an Ace showing.  You should double whenever the dealer has a 3, 4, 5 or a 6 showing.  You should never stand nor surrender when you have a nine hand.
