      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 5:diamond: , 5:spade: . CO posts a blind of $0.10.
      3 folds, CO checks, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $0.30

      My sample sizes were small, the CO poster is most likely a small stack TAG. If we imagine the same stats only 1k+hands, then this move is +EV yes?

      I wouldnt steal this one Out of position with Fives.
      Blind poster can have anything on CO, en BB's sample size is rather short but VPIP 21 is rather loose + he is passive.

      Another one is that you are playing on NL10 and I wouldnt recommend stealing there but there are always people saying that stealing is profitable there but microlimits is too random. Stick to basic SSS and you can play on NL25/50 in no time.

      I dont like this fancy plays on micros at all. co will call very loose when bu knows what you are doing he will resteal any2 so dont get fancy learn the basic strat and move up the limits with a good basic knowledge.
