      Hello Oly0909,

      Nah, the plan of Check/Raise the flop or something similar is totally fine, since MP2 was PFA and therefore oftentimes he might as well try CBetting here. Nice hand! Although it could be also possible to just donk it it since by the river we would likely get his whole stack anyways if we Bet all 3 streets and what might be oftentimes even better.

      Best regards.

      I would donk here because a cbet bluff is unlikely in a 4-way pot and he won't fold his overpairs anyways.

      If he also has there overpairs then he might as well Bet them likely for value. :) But as I mentioned that I like betting myself also oftentimes for the given reason that there are still hands which may be drawing and etc, which may easily Check behind on river. Also by betting ourself on all streets we are able to get their whole stack.
