      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 4 4

      $5.15 pot ($0.23 rake)
      Final Board: 4 K 8 A
      MP1 mucked and lost (-$2.05 net)
      Hero mucked 4 4 and won $4.92 ($2.87 net)

      Preflop I think the call is ok because I am a bit deeper with MP2 and also there are several loose passive players at the table who I think will come along too.

      MP1 is same villain as in the AK hand where he had a set and minbet turn for raise induce. But often these small bets are drawing hands. On the turn he has about $6.70 behind and I need to bet big for protection, so is it ok to put him all-in directly or is that a bit overplayed? I thought it's a bit pointless betting the turn $4 and leaving him with like $2.70 on the river which I might not get paid anyway from his missed draw.

      (Obviously, the decision would be easier if I had potted the flop bigger so that I could put him all-in on the turn without needing an overbet! Always easier with hindsight..)
