      Hey there,

      Fold 55 pre-flop (better to stick to the SHC).

      As played, I'd bet pot-sized flop for value, 2/3 pot turn and push to re-raises.

      Hey BurlacuCG,

      in SSS we never openlimp, so fold 55 preflop and stick to the SHC from the articles. You could play that way if you were playing BSS, also your stack size is closer to BSS than to SSS, so maybe you should consider playing BSS as mentioned in your other thread.

      As played, like dandycal said, bet potsize on the flop, 2/3 potsize on the turn for value and push to a reraise.
