Every time i get pairs like 22,33,44,55,66 i don't know what to do.
I don't know how much i must bet or if anyone bet behind me can I re-rise him or just call him?

Dont re-raise limp if possable, raise in late position depending on players and action before you, no set dont bet.
Short answers.

Just make a normal raise. You can make your hand or bluff if the flop comes A high or K high. Things can be interessting if someone reraises.

Depends on the number of limpers/raisers, your stack size, your opponent's stack size, your position, opponents position and how aggressive/passive your opponents are .. etc etc Big Smile

I'm assuming you play either NL10 or below so here goes:

Those hands are usually good for raising in late position such as the button and maybe cutoff (if you play 9man tables). Its not good to reraise with those kind of hands so try not to (if at all). Raisers in early position most likely have a strong hand.

Try and see the flop cheaply by limping if you're in early position because you're mainly just trying to make a set

Pretty much follow scl1975, bigfoot's and shokaku's advice ^^

You can raise pre-flop, but never re-raise or play a 3bet, unless you and your opponet are really deep.

Those hands are usually weak unless you hit a set on the flop. This occurs like 12% of times.
So if you want to play low pocket pairs and get profit in the long run, you should call only a raise wiht these cards if your opponent left 20 times his raise in his stack.

when reraise call only like7-8bb when opponent has more than 70x bb then call 10-12times bb raise.. get lucky and hit set then you can play as you want, if not fold if raise, if no raise and youre in position raise!

play it like big pockets (i do anyways - depends on pos). c-bet...most opponents fold, if reraise just fold. i love these hands more than anything as you can win huge pots if you hit.

I've been stung by so many set over set situations recently that I'm starting to get the hump with it.

What are the odds of you losing to a higher set on the flop, is it something like 1 in 60?

It depends on how big the raise was in order for you to call. If it is just 2x to 3x the bb, call and try to hit on the flop. Iif you miss and they raise just fold. If you hit and they raise, you can either call or raise and play the rest from there. I like pocket pairs because when you hit you can win big
