      Hand converted with online hand converter:


      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 5, 5.
      Hero calls $0.02, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.06, BB calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.04.

      Flop: ($0.18) 6, 3, A (3 players)
      SB bets $0.02, BB calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      Turn: ($0.24) J (3 players)
      SB bets $0.02, BB calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      River: ($0.3) 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $0.3.

      1. In my previous position, holding a small of 55, with injection into the pot should or should raise it?
      I remember in the 6-MAX, holding a small pair at any position should raise into the pot
      However, I have concerns: such a small force of 5 cards, if not hit the set, in POSTFLOP will be difficult to play well, so I chose to call, expect to invest a small chance to win the set
      I do not know, this idea correct?
      2.SB chose to raise 3BB, I chose to call, because the amount of his raise in line "with the injection of 20"principle
      flop: opponents miniraise, I think opponents may not yet successful brand, and I am successful brand, albeit small, to call

      Hello wangwei520,

      Preflop: In 6max rather raise it up than limp. There it's a lot harder to play PPs with just limp profitable.
      Postflop: I guess I would just fold to avoid any further mistakes. If we even hit the 5 it could as well be that someone else hits a straight.

      Best regards.
