      Prima, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $11.15 (111.5 bb)
      UTG: $10.41 (104.1 bb)
      Hero (MP): $11.19 (111.9 bb)
      CO: $10.40 (104 bb)
      BTN: $9.64 (96.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q Q
      UTG calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30, UTG calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) 5 5 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG bets $0.50, Hero raises to $1.60, BB folds, UTG raises to $3.20, Hero raises to $10.79 and is all-in, UTG calls $6.81 and is all-in

      He could have overpairs, perhaps overplaying JJ/TT. he could have flush draws. Rarely will he show trips/full houses or quads. So I shoved for value.

      Turn: ($21.27) Q (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($21.27) 6 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $21.27 pot ($1.06 rake)
      Final Board: 5 5 6 Q 6
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.40 net)
      UTG showed 5 5 and won $20.21 ($9.80 net)
      Hero showed Q Q and won $0.00 (-$10.41 net)

      Considering that he is limping UTG he is most likely a fishy player so his range can have 6x, 77-JJ, some 5x and of course draws so raising for value is fine.

      I would also go with the hand but I can see us raising bigger on the flop, perhaps closer to $2 (for pure value) because we can also expect him to have a calling range at times.

      Ah I just went for standard 3x raise. Didn't notice his donk was so small. Yeah should have taken it up to $2.

      Yeh, it gives us more value because most of the time he won't have 55 or 5x but rather draws/6x/pockets
