      I am not sure, if i shall bet it. They checked all the time and my pocket 5th are not the best on this board. I was quiet scarry of a slow play and there are so many opponents. So I guess, I played it right.

      Of course....you cannot bet and get called by worse. Also it is hard to believe that none is in front of you so checking is ok. You can call that preflop just for set value. If there are squeezers behind you to act it is not wrong also to fold 55 preflop.

      Hi,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Checking back is fine.

      Turn: Since everyone checked yet again they may be ok to bet to try and get some better pairs to fold and perhaps get called by weaker draws. However a lot of guys still check/call a Qx and maybe even a weak Kx so checking down is fine.
