Agree, I basically went for a hit or miss play. I hit but unfortunately, things did not fall my way. This hand pretty much summarizes the type of hits I been taking. O'well thats poker for you

I've got to agree. Early in tourney, UTG with 55 a limp is fine, but to call that raise was your mistake. It would have been better to shove all in at that point. At least you'd make villain do a rethink.

But again it is early. Once the flop hits, you should think you are toast. Consider the difference it would have made had you pushed very hard at the flop, rather than a check raise (CR). You would have put villain in an ugly spot putting his tourney like on the line for a flush draw.

I suggest you start thinking about limiting your villains ability to catch a hand, and when you know its yours, take it then and there.

Incidentally, I think I've seen just about everyone here play this type hand just the way you played it. And usually your hand prevails.:(

UTG with 5/5 the limp isn't bad but a 3xbb raise would give you more information on your opponents if they called or re-raised. You have a pretty good stack compared to the others, if I read the others as weak and I have intimidation on my side I raise with this utg. On the other hand just limping with a small pair utg is fairly a normal play. Calling the raise is ok too you could afford the speculation.

I don't like slow playing the flop though after hitting a small set. I would have bet either half or full pot, when in EP you have to know where you stand. If someone comes over you with a re-raise then you can consider how they've played in the past and try and get a read on what they are holding compared to the flop texture and their bet coming over you. A good bet on the flop might have gotten the J/K to fold, especially if you raised pre-flop, even on a limp a half to full pot bet screams of set.

If you had played it this way the 3/3 would have lost to you and the J/k would likely have folded. All though he's also a big stack and could have been a lucky calling station, I do see that from time to time lucky tall stacks playing rushes or feeling their oats.

Over all though I think using your chips as tools to get information, for intimidation could have been applied here, difficult UTG with 5/5 but that's the way I see it. "Most" players play it just the way you did, but your here to learn how to play better and get out of the "most players" bracket. This is just stuff to think about. Good Luck :D

EP = Early Position, UTG = Under The Gun, and the blinds are the worst positions and the DB = Dealer Button is the best position. In EP you have to give information away, in late position or on the DB you get to receive information. Playing less than premium hands in EP is dangerous, the closer you play to the DB the looser your hand requirements can be. Information is KEY to poker which is why you hear the advice of professionals, position, position, position.
