UTG: 4.480 (9 bb)
UTG+1: 20.131 (40 bb)
MP(hero): 18.814 (37.6 bb)
HJ: 27.799 (55.6 bb)
CO: 26.010 (52 bb)
BTN: 11.498 (23 bb)
SB: 57.304 (114.6 bb)
BB: 39.015 (84.55 bb)

Pre-flop (1.390), Hero is MP :5s4::5d4:
2 folds, Hero calls 500, HJ calls 500, 2 folds, SB calls 250, BB checks


Flop (2.640) :3d4::4h4::5h4:
2 checks, Hero bets 1.050, 2 folds, BB calls 1.050


Turn (4.740) :jh4:
BB checks, Hero bets 1.659, BB folds


~ I limped pre, two upcoming covers me and SB-BB having a monster stack - So as it could be easy to 3-bet my spot I actually thought in this MP position with these stack sizes I'm actually limping most of my combinations?

~ I'm not sure if my sizings are correct post-flop or do they?


Thanks for the help in advance :)

Preflop
Dont see any reason to limp. If you make a standard open and get 3-bet, then you just fold. Its not a big deal.

Flop
On such a wet board I kind of want to go larger. But on the other side small bets are generally GTO in multiway pots. You also dont exactly have the nuts, since 3 different straights are possible, and lots of hands have equity with some kind of draw. So a small size cant be that bad. If people have nothing like KJ of spades or whatever, they are not calling any bet, so it does not matter.

Turn
Not the best card, since the flush got there, but another small bet seems fine enough to me. You can still call a reasonable raise and then basically hope for the board to pair on the river.

Totally agree with you , preflop its an open 2x-2.5x , flop you should bet more like 75% pot , on turn I like your bet , small is better and you can find very good info .
In the end I like how you play but I would never limp 55 with your stack .
