      No, don't bet. You're in a 4-way pot, just check/fold your trash 2nd pair.. someone's bound to have a queen here :p waste of money

      I'd say then reraise the raiser preflop and if called + left HU c-bet flop, as played check/fold flop.

      With so many people the flop is check/fold.

      Preflop is more interesting. We can either call or raise to isolate.
      Raising to isolate.
      - Raise to around $0.6. Usually this reduces the field to one player.
      - A cbet then becomes vital as we are not likely to have an over pair or a set and are hoping to take down the pot on the flop.
      - We are out of position post-flop.
      - Potentially a riskier strategy but will take down more pots.

      Call.
      - Essentially playing for set value (12.5%)
      - If we hit we can then be fairly confident we are ahead in the hand.
      - If we miss however we will usually have to check/fold against a wider field.
      - Easier strategy but much more timid.

      I personally like to call for set value. Makes the hand very easy to play and avoids a lot of difficult situations.

      Preflop: You can either raise here or just call. Both plays are OK. I also would prefer here to call and go for set value.
      Flop: Check/Fold in multiway pots.
