      In a 4way pot, should I be more aggresive?
      Edit: one click too short, I usually raise 4bb

      Well played.

      There's no need to play your flushdraw aggresively multiway because:

      1. You won't get all the folds.
      2. You've got the direct odds and implieds anyway.

      I´d raise flop, since:
      - you have initiative and can easily rep AK, KK; AA, so players are b/f that spot weaker hands than Kx or even if they call flop, they might easily fold to your turn shove
      - so you always have fold equity, especially against weak bet and since A high can´t win too many showdowns I´d prefer raising that spot
      Once you hit your tp it is fine calling down his small bets. I´d likely bet river myself for value 3$, since he would very easily c/c that spot with Kx
