      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2:

      MP1:

      MP2:

      CO (Hero):
      $28.03
      BU:
      $25.00
      SB:
      $36.23
      BB:
      $51.68


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5, 5.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, BU folds, SB calls $0.90, BB folds.

      Flop: ($2.25) 4, 8, A (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.50, SB calls $1.50.

      Turn: ($5.25) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3.00, SB calls $3.00.

      River: ($11.25) T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $11.25.

      Not sure about turn play here. If he has A he's not going to fold but he can definitely fold 8x,4x,some weak draws. Don't see any value in betting river so I check behind. Can I checkbehind here and hope for free showdown?

      I would most of the times check back turn and fold to river bet, since they tend to have a lot of times Ax hand that they won´t fold to my turn barrel.
      And if he has even flushdraw then likely he also has overcards to your 55, so he has a lot of equity.
      Sometimes you get free showdown with 55, sometimes he bet. Mostly should river be fold, since you´re not ahead enough times
