      OnGame - $0.04 NL - Holdem - 7 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BB: $1.76
      UTG: $1.36
      UTG+1: $1.06
      MP: $1.60
      CO: $3.43
      BTN: $3.96
      Hero (SB): $4.19

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has 5:heart: 5:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.04, UTG+1 calls $0.04, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.16, 4 players) 6:spade: 7:heart: 5:club:
      Hero bets $0.16, BB calls $0.16, UTG calls $0.16, fold

      Turn: ($0.64, 3 players) 3:diamond:
      Hero checks, BB bets $0.48, UTG calls $0.48, Hero raises to $3.99 and is all-in, fold, UTG calls $0.68 and is all-in

      River: ($3.44, 2 players) 8:diamond:

      UTG shows 4:diamond: 9:diamond: (Straight, Nine High) (PreFlop 33%, Flop 25%, Turn 74%)
      Hero shows 5:heart: 5:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Fives) (PreFlop 67%, Flop 75%, Turn 26%)
      UTG wins $3.22

      I should probably not moved all-in, maybe i should've just called or raised more on the flop?

      Kinda weird hand he had tho, but I guess it's still a valid hand since everyone just limped in.

      Not realy valid because he is UTG. Against shorty I prefer raising preflop around $0,24. So if he call, reevaluate on flop, but if he 3bet, just fold. As you played, there is not much to do, but still I dont like your chack/raise on turn, because there is SD and 2 higher cards than your 55. So raise preflop.

      Hello Rasken,

      Not a huge fan either of Check/Raise. You just scare a lot worse away. Rather just Call and be happy if you even get both opponents along and might even hit your FH. They wont ship without straight the river anyways.

      Best Regards.
