      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $26.37
      MP3:
      $15.67
      CO (Hero):
      $38.88
      BU:
      $24.47
      SB:
      $25.91
      BB:
      $25.00


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5, 5.
      MP2 raises to $0.75, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.75, BU folds, SB calls $0.65, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.5) 2, 4, 3 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.25, MP2 raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $7.25, SB folds, MP2 raises to $15.93, Hero raises to $38.13, MP2 calls $9.69.

      Turn: ($66.5) J (2 players)


      River: ($66.5) T (2 players)


      Final Pot: $66.5.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of fives(5s 5h).
      MP2 shows three of a kind, fours(4h 4d).

      MP2 wins with three of a kind, fours(4h 4d).

      Did I overplay the hand on the flop and if yes how should I have played it?
      I decided to shove before the turn because there are many cards that i dont want to see on the turn and villain might also become scared so I figure the flop is the best place to put my money in.

      Flat.

      Raising doesn't fold out a single better hand (most people on NL25 are physically incapable of folding an overpair on the flop), and doesn't get called by worse.

      I would also just call flop.
      Only reason to raising flop is to get him force to fold 66-AA, and some players would even go with these hands, so most of the times you´re getting all-in against sets/overpairs that has you crushed
