      I think it's safe to go broke there. No OESD possible on the flop and he is too short to fold given the odds there on the turn...

      I don't think you should be limping in early position with pocket fours, and i think you can check to MP3 on the flop because often he will continuation bet that board against two limp-callers and there aren't many bad cards that could hit if he does decide to check.

      But i'm happily calling on the turn.

      QJ makes OESD, or am I missing something?

      I think donking is fine, we don't wanna give free card against two players and I wouldn't trust that MP3 will cbet. When BB folds it gets even easier, just bet/broke turn and be happy. If he had full stack it would be different and I may fold bottom set.
      We had talk about limping and raising low pp`s preflop, overall my point was - I like open raising them or limping behind in SH games, but playing 22 UTG in FR may cause some headache. SHC is made not without a reason... :)

      @Duudalinja: Yeah, I didn't post my whole thought.. No OESD completed from the flop by that Q...

      I´d play happily there for stacks, since he can easily have there AK/KQ, random Kx hand and since he is so short he would often get all-in a lot weaker hands than yours
