      Hero showed 5 5 and won $0.84 ($0.41 net)
      BB showed T Q and lost (-$0.43 net)

      I should have value bet the river right? I guess the flush scared me although he would have surely played it more agressively. I was thinking around 0.52 might have a chance of being called. BB has a vpip of 27 so he may have called

      Hi,

      easy valuebet on blank river card. Very likely he would call you down with any top pair hand. 0.52$ is fine river bet.

      Best regards,

      Hello 0744379,

      Preflop: Never-ever limp with 55 on BU. Why don't you just steal? Standard spot to steal. :)

      As played
      Postflop: I'd definitely bet it bigger and even pot size on the flop and most likely would also make it pot size on the turn. Plus of course you could easily even bet for value on the river, ~1/2 pot size at least.

      Best Regards.

      I think I limped on the button as the BB was 3 betting my steals and I thought I could see a cheap flop. What do you think? If he 3bets I cant call for set value

      If he is a maniac of 3betting then just min-raise or do some smaller raise which would give you also good odds for set mining.
