      Hello NorwayCowboy,
      Its very nice that you started posting your hands for evaluation.
      It will be better if you use a converter next time.Either the one Pokerstrategy offers, or anyone in the internet(search google for it).
      About the hand, you can raise 3,5xBB+1BB per limper or even 4BB+1BB per limper.That way, you build bigger pots with your big hands.About your 4bet, you can make it bigger too, about 3$.Anyway, the hand is a cooler,but he wont flop a set every time, and since he's calling 4bets with medium pocket pairs, he will be a very profitable fish in the longterm. Nice hand!
