      BB mucked and lost (-$0.15 net)

      I re-raised on the flop to protect my hand against flushdraws with so many opponents. However come to think of it there are 9 outs for flushdraws and 7 outs for my full house/quads. My outs also increase to 10 in case I don't hit on the turn. So the question is, should I re-raise to protect my hand, or just call with the hope players behind me calling and thus increasing the pot size.
