      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $11.50
      CO:
      $77.70
      BU(Hero):
      $57.75
      SB:
      $66.30
      BB:
      $53.30
      MP2:
      $30.25


      Villain has 3 bet me almost every time I raise first in, especially in blinds. I've been folding every time and had enough

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5, 6.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB raises to $5.00, BB folds, Hero raises to $9.50, SB calls $4.50.

      I should have bet more here, though he 4 bet me last time I did that.

      Flop: ($19.5) 6, 4, T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $10.00

      I bet small not to look like I'm trying to push him off the pot on such a board.

      you can call 56s ip if you think he is making too many moves
      if youré going to 4-bet then 12$ is better size than 9,5$
      I think c-bet is fine, just don´t know if you should call shove if he decides to shove :)
      so you can maybe also try to check back flop, call turn and evaluate river
      or go b/c on the flop, since you have now one pair and he can shove with Ax
