"raising so few hands lets me limp with an extremely wide range"

thats also assuming you know something about the villian (or they know something about you), against an unknown id always raise

Limping is fine, but on pairing a 5 (bottom 1/3 of rank range) you need to bet that flop. Free card here is a clear mistake. Plus you're pushing the boundary of reasonable expectation for this hand -- asking for trouble.

In general, I like to open raise often from the SB. Here, I like the complete better for the reasons I mentioned. If villain raises, you can push, call, or fold. In a limped pot, our hand has deception, and we can often get paid off if an ace hits. If you raise, you are not happy unless villain folds.

Incidently, open pushing is cEV+ here, and avoids playing a hand OOP, but I am sure gobbo thinks he has a skill advantage and can get the most EV by playing a limped pot.

One thing I love about limping here is guys will look you up and play back at you so much when you flop TP because NOBODDY LIMPS ACES.
There is value in betting this river, but I might prefer to c/c and get straight draws or clubs to bet. He also might check back sevens because people can't vbet.

I like preflop, flop, and turn. River is a small bet, like 5k, cause he's almost never got you beat and he's almost always checking back.

bet bet bet river... even a bigger bet than 6k is fine vs. a thinking player/calling station like myself.

I feel like he is betting too many of his weaker 5s on the flop to bet the river.
