      Hi!

      I'm not some big pro or something, but I'll tell you what I think. (Then the pros will come and say it's stupid, but I'll have a moment of glory.:D )

      I like the raise on 4th.
      I wouldn't like a raise on 5th, because of the following reasons:
      - seat 7 could have picked up the perfect card (he won't have a 5 too often, because you have 2), if on 3rd he had 3 low cards, and for sme weird reason he cbet 4th... (typical holdem player?!)
      - seat 8 hit good, if he also goes for the low
      - I'd preserve my implied odds here, and represent just a naked lowdraw, because if you improve to Aces up, your opponents can think that you only have a low, and pay you with worse two pairs, or just a high pair

      I think it's pretty standard after that...

      Hello,

      I think you can raise on 5th street because maybe seat 7 has a better low draw than you (or he has a good pair TT+), and you want to play HU with he, because you have a hi hand (55), and a good low draw. The other villain seems weak...

      I think there is a good argument for limp raising 3rd street and then keep pounding away on 4th. As it is when nobody raises all we can do is see 4th and bet it hard. :)

      When you get to the river there are a bunch of stud players who polarize their ranges a lot and wont bet 1 pair but will always bet 2 pair and better.
      So this river is a super easy fold as 6's up will not be winning.

      So personally I play it the same way as you so long as you were going to raise 3rd if given a chance. :)
