      I think i misplayed this here. My thought was that I'll just call flop and shove turn so I keep at least his draws in the hand.

      The problem is that the pot is already quite big on the flop, so if I just call his raise, there is still no way I can keep my stack from going in on the subsequent streets. Although I feel that a fold on the flop is quite weak there, I think it might have been the better choice?

      against 4 players b/f flop is reasonable, since it is very high chance that they hold there two pair, set or at best case some draws where has a lot of equity to you.
      If you have reason to think that BB might c/r draws then shoving flop is ok, although you can also b/c flop and get all-in safe turn card
