      BTN: $44.83 (179.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5 5
      Hero raises to $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, 2 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) 4 2 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.23, Hero calls $1.23

      Hero bets $3.25, BTN raises to $6.50, Hero raises to $17.70, BTN calls $11.20

      $39.71 pot ($1.98 rake)
      Final Board: 4 2 2 Q 5
      Hero showed 5 5 and won $37.73 ($18.05 net)
      BTN mucked and lost (-$19.68 net)

      Flop: I chose not to Cbet as i don't really rep much and i also don't want to have to fold my hand to Raise so opted to C/C with no real plan which is something i need to address

      Turn: If he had bet again what would be my best option?

      River: When we hit on the river i decide just to donk and hope he calls any PPs he has in his range and also expect him to raise almost everything he was betting anyway .. When he raises i'm abit confused as to what my sizing should be when i reraise. Should i have just shipped? is there anything thats calling a big 3bet but not a ship?

      I think flop play can be OK, always going to be a sticky situation with 55 so checking and betting are both good options.

      For turn, if he bets you should probably call once more. It's hard but A high and random gutshots, draws still bet quite often while a lot of middlepairs that would beat you check when the Q comes.

      On the river I agree with leading, I also think your sizing against the raise should be a shove. People's ranges vs a river 3bet are quite inelastic. It's usually that he raises with a bluff, so folds to the 3bet anyway or raises with 2x slowplayed so will almost never fold to the 3bet if he has a value hand.
