      no stats/reads on villain
      judging by donk multiway, and the fact that villain is 1 tabling, i presumed villain to be a fish.

      i raise flop since villain will have tons of worse 8x/fds/sds/etc

      on turn, only 67 completes, so i think there is tons of value still vs 8x/pair +gutter/ fds/etc

      i think hand is pretty standard, but i just moved up to NL50 and am a little unsure of myself.

      against a half stacked fish i think your line is fine, raising for value on flop and betting on turn is good against his weak pair and drawing hands.

      the 4 on the turn helps him a little but not too much so we can keep going for value.

      i might consider raising slightly smaller on the flop so that i get more calls from the weaker end of his range and of course bet turn all in.
