      I would muck the hand after I get reraised preflop. There are 4 people to act behind you, one short stack and one medium stack who can easily push. Besides I don't think it's profitable to play big pots with small pairs.
      As played I guess it's ok to take a stab on the turn.

      How I would play preflop depends on my reads on BTN. His min raise of so many preflop indicates either a) a monster, (which makes him a fish), or b) a weak attempt to steal the "dead money" (which makes him an even bigger fish).

      Your raise of 44 from UTG on a FR table is interesting as well. I would never do this with a lot of loose passives behind me, I am never folding out enough to make it profitable.

      Any aggressive behind me is going to make a decent reraise to steal the dead money as well, so it is an awkward spot to be in.

      Against BTN being a weak fish, I might reraise over him to $25, but I would then be committed with basically just a low pair. If his range is mostly premium hands, I'm screwed.

      It's hard not to call for the odds, given that I get 1:4 almost, however, the point regarding those to come behind me possibly raising it up speaks against this.

      I would play c/f to the river postflop, given that I don't beat any pocket pair except 22, and a 5,8 or 9 get over me as well.

      I like the raise preflop.The odds call is good too, considering that more of the players will come along(I dont expect anyone to take the flatcall/4bet line).As played, taking a stab on the turn is fine.
