      I think this is 100% -EV decision couse after calling 4BBs pre-flop it's quite possible that MP1 has an Ace and he won't fold it. just lead the flop with a 2/3 pot bet. if he calls and turn brings another low card than bet like 4BBs for pot control.

      interesting line
      I think b/f flop seems like better line, because if he calls your c/r you find yourself quite difficult situation
