      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

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

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $52.05
      CO:
      $94.00
      BU (Hero):
      $68.00
      SB:
      $88.25
      BB:
      $51.50
      MP2:
      $50.00


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5<img alt="" src="http://resources.pokerstrategy.com/smileys/club.png"/>, 5<img alt="" src="http://resources.pokerstrategy.com/smileys/diamond.png"/>.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB folds, BB raises to $5.50, Hero raises to $12.00, BB calls $6.50.



      Flop: ($24.25) A<img alt="" src="http://resources.pokerstrategy.com/smileys/diamond.png"/>, 3<img alt="" src="http://resources.pokerstrategy.com/smileys/club.png"/>, 4<img alt="" src="http://resources.pokerstrategy.com/smileys/club.png"/> (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $14.00, BB raises to $39.50, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $38.25.

      Villan is regular with 26/19/11.1 VP/PFR/3bet and 50% fold to 4-bet on 4 sample size.
      Thoughts?

      EDIT: Since this doesn't seem to work, here's a short version:
      I have 55 in BU, raise to 3 BBs, the BB 3-bets me to 11 BBs, flop comes A34 and I decide to contibet 55% of the pot after his check. His all-in makes me fold.

      I don't like 4betting so small versus such opponent because you give him somehow good odds to call with AK,AQ,AJ and also your hand plays super pooooooooor in 3bet pots.That being said you shouldn't be ever bluff 4betting with pocket pairs because you will have to call all in or be all in yourself.If you want to 4bet him make it 20 so it's comitting and call his all in,otherwise call for set value or fold.

      I would also likely either call or fold pf depends how aggressive is player
      4-bet/call sucks since likely you´re crushed but if he is really aggro then he is shoving even smt like ATs so I like more 4-bet/call than 4-bet/fold with pp
      imo if you bet turn you have to call shove with gutshot and pair since he can shove there random hands trying to force you to fold you pp-s
      I think check back turn is also reasonable and either b/f then turn or seeing what he does is likely better play than b/f hand that sometimes is ahead or if behind then likely has 6 outs to improve
