      Hi

      Your play is better. Allowing more people into the pot does not mean that you get to stack both players. You just give UTG+1 a cheap price to hit some set or two pair type of hand.

      But you have the alternative option of making a smaller 4bet. Maybe to something like 80cents. I think this would be the best play. Best case scenario for you is if you 4bet to 80, UTG+2 calls, and CO shoves.

      THanks.
