A very difficult moment should I call here or should I play differently, after the call, fold on the river will result in the loss of the initial buy-in from which 60% remained at the beginning of this hand.
I imagine this influenced your small open size and resulting small sized 3-Bet from villain. With a full stack and normal sized open of 2.5bb and 11bb BB 3 bet 55 is mixing calling and folding. You having a small stack also makes calling less profitable. Most of the expected value from low pocket pairs come from hitting trips and stacking villain, you're going to flop a set about 1/8 times so you need to get full value the times you do.
Secondly with a big stack I don't think villain can put the same amount of pressure on you. You're huge decision is basically on the turn here, where you have a pretty nice hand but one that you can't make enough on when you hit either an A or a 6 but your other two 5s are now less likely to be good as it would give all of villains Aces a straight (Might not be overly relevant have no Idea what villain should have here with the big flop and turn bet)
If you had a full stack you can consider making a turn call with a reasonable amount of equity vs a maniac and can still draw out to the nuts, and he might slow down with some A high hands but I really have no idea, this hand is a situation you don't come across much so I wouldn't spend too much time thinking about it.
Buy in and keep a 100bb stack and if you really want to you can use an application like Flopzilla and try and figure out what range he would double barrel big with on that flop and what equity you need to make the turn call and see if 55 make it there.
3x pre flop wen you raise. The short stack thing is up to you but if you are going to play with a short stack then I believe there needs to be more hands that you are prepared to go with when you get it in a hand.
On the flop, I believe this is the spot in the hand facing this sizing with $1.05 left behind on whether you are going with the hand or not. In your post I read it as the turn was where you were thinking should I go with it or not. Facing this bet I either fold or decide I am not folding this hand no matter the runout (which is dangerous of course). If I am never folding then a case can be made for jamming due to equity denial but if you are going with the hand I think I would call flop and then jam over the large bet on the turn and hope you are facing an over aggressive opponent as you mention. In reality, there are few turns and rivers that you like and facing a raise pre and the large flop bet in the long run I think this is a better fold on the flop.
