      raise preflop, tons of dead money!!!!!

      why raise here? you expect someone to bet less than Tx on this flop? So the raise is just turning your hand in a bluff instead of a hand with SD value.

      easy call flop, probably call turn, and reevaluate river, people tend to limp PP's for setvalue

      I think no worse hands would call or better hands would fold to your strange min-raise, at best you get be bluffed out, since you´re raising where you at in the hand.
      I would call flop and evaluate on the turn.
      And I also like raise pf.

      If I just call flop, what about the danger of ppl calling behind me?

      Doesn't matter what they have - if they beat you they will still stay in the hand if you raise, but now you invested $3.50 instead of $1.75.

      As the previous posters said you can avoid the whole situation by raising preflop, which i'm strongly advising, too.
