      I think I missed value by not betting the flop and betting smallish on the turn, but I think I will lose the player and he will not go to the river...

      Hi.

      Preflop: What is the purpose of the raise? While I rarely advocate limping behind, I think this is a suitable spot to consider limping behind. 55 plays poorly in a 3way pot if you have the initiative because you cannot really cbet on many boards.

      If you want to raise here, at least raise it up to a size where you can isolate the opponents and attempt to play Heads up. I would raise it up to 30cents. When your raise size is so small, both of them are almost guaranteed to call. And when you get a 3way situation, your advantage as the Preflop raiser with the initiative is greatly diminished.

      Imagine this board texture of 793 with a flush draw and you have 55 in a 3way pot. It isn't really a great spot to put in a continuation bet here cos it's likely that at least one of them will call. Now, if it was Headsup, then things are much more different.

      Flop: As played, easy bet. Just keep betting on every street. I don't like slowplaying on low boards. If you have AA on A83, then I agree with slowplaying. If you have 55 on 577s, there are a ton of hands which can continue, such as 89/spades/88-JJ etc. And Ace high might not even fold to your Flop bet.
