Presto is Gold (Part 29)

After my weak/tight fold of 55 UTG last night I resolved not to let it happen again. Here is how to properly play 55 from under the gun:

PokerStars $5/10NL, 8-handed

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Fuel55 raises $20 to $30 from UTG with [5c 5s]
MP calls $30

*** FLOP *** [4c 8h Kh]
Fuel55 bets $50
MP folds
Fuel55 collected $72 from pot

Easy peasy ...

Very sorry, but why is 55 called Presto? Been playing for over 2 years and never heard this one before...
Really like your blog, good mix of hand histories and strategy discussion, and the levels you play at are more than a little inspiring (admits the lowly 2-4NL player). Am very keen to get more people reading my own blog, do you have any advice?
