      c/f all the way with low pocket pair.

      On the turn, you have 5 high one card flushdraw which is nothing, so easy c/f.

      The river, there's no weaker hand that would call you here, so there's no reason to bet , despite the weak play performed by opponents you're not getting any value. And besides, 55 is really weak.

      I would advise you to read/reread freeplay articles.

      Was going to post exactly the same case with pocket fours, and then saw this post :)

      The check-check is really tempting, but that's it, I swear to myself to never bet in a situation like this again :D
