      Don't limp with aces! In fact, in a 5-handed table, you shouldn't limp anything in an unopened pot (either raise or fold). Now you have absolutely no idea what SB might have (besides, you've only played 21 hands with him so it's not possible to have any kind of read on him yet), and even if you call his minraise it's difficult to make decisions in later streets. I guess your best shot here is call on the flop then check/call all the way unless another club hits.

      As a side note: you should include stack sizes next time. They're a very important factor in making decisions.

      hi
      include stack sizes when you post a hand
      dont limp with aces never . you lose too much value
      as played you can fold in a multiway pot with no club
