      Hi there,

      The call pre-flop is a poor play. Generally it is a standard fold but if you are going to play this hand then raise. You could take it down there and then or at least you'd have the initiative post flop.

      As played on the flop if you are going to raise then i think you need to make it $0.75 but when villain 4-bets i'm probably folding. No point going bust in a limped pot. You will have better spots to get the money off an aggro player.

      This. Fold preflop and i'd just call the flop in case he's drawing or something, mostly folding to further action. No point clinging to TPNK in a 4-way limped pot.


      Hope it helps.
