      I just decided to call preflop, since the PFA seemed to be very passive (but likes calling) with almost no PFR. I put him on AA or KK.

      I really liked the action before me but I still needed to protect and wanted to make it heads up because of so connected flop. How much to raise (if so)?

      Well, he could not laydown his hand and he was drawing to one out :D

      On that flop, in a 4way pot, I'm not slowplaying. So I think a raise comes in handy, especially after some of the players have shown strength and might be willing to go broke right there.

      I usually raise to something like $18-$20. I don't think it has to be so big, because nobody's gonna just call your raise I believe. They're likely shoving over or folding.

      You have to raise there, because board is too drawy to slowplay and doubt that pfa would fold there, once he raised SB lead out.
      24$ is fine amount, you can also raise a little less, smt to 18-20$ to get impression that they have fold equity if they shove.
      If I hold there set as a pfa, I would ship it 100%, because board is too drawy and you could easily hold there two pair.

      Hello,

      I would raise here also but I don't think you will need a overpot protection, as caltabiano said $18-$20 should be enough.

      Best regards,
