you posted the hand twice

pre-flop was nice, post flop is dangerous, too many trips opportunities on the board... callers and fishies could have hit any trip set post flop before that straight even landed, its way too dangerous to put all-in for me

Not intentionally, though. For some reason it always does that.

Risky, yes, but given the lack of aggression from anyone else, couldn't put anyone on trips, and with a rainbow flop and no straight draw on the flop, I figured that there was a good enough chance to be on top, so I bet big to get them off any runner-runner and any possible set draws.

well you say they are fishes, this means that they often play too much hands and dont know how to play, maybe they dont know how to play trips? or they slowplayed you just for profits

Its a meaningless question. The hand played itself.
Granted, I would not have played 55 exactly that way, but that player did and sucked out on you.
I just lost with KK last night to 5c3c, when they called my raise and flopped a flush.
Just move on to the next hand. I dont see anything to learn from this one.

if the opps were calling stations, while I like your preflop raise, when I saw the flop... I'd be kicking myself that I didn't push preflop.... because they very easily could have a 7 in their hand. Calling stations will call with ATC, so there is a better chance that one of them could be holding a 7.

There really was no way for you not to get your chips in.. and the opps made horrilble calls on every single play (except the 55 calling to see the flop, but then they should have folded to your flop bet).
