      Hi Ramadas,

      Preflop: I believe our hand is strong enough to raise/isolate preflop/ Since we have 4 limpers I'd make it at least 6-7x here.

      As played I don't like our call on the flop because we let villains chase the many draws cheeply and we also lose value from hands that would pay more money (like Ax, draws, etc).

      So re-raise the flop and go from there (to at least 0.6)
