I am in the big blind holding 5s 5d and with a stack of 10BBs. The player on the button goes all-in and the small blind calls. They both had more chips than me. Should I have paid? Summing up the hand! I won at River! with 3 of a kind, but I believe I played wrong! but I entered the prize! Player 1 A K , player 2 Q Q.
I Think you played it wrong.
With 55, the best you should expect in this situation was a coin flip. Considering the game was in the bubble, it was not the best spot to call. In another moment, it could be a good choice.

You should be flipping versus the hands that the button shoves with and maybe even ahead of their 22-44, so if SB folded that's a standard call.
When SB rejams they are tighter than the BU and they have a lot of medium pairs or better that crush us.
Unless we run against two overcards (which is a rare scenario and even then we are flipping) we get very little equity.
This hand should be a fold.
