So this is a hand I played a few days ago that I believe was early on in the tournament and I’m wondering how I should be playing situations like this one where I have a low to mid pocket pairs and the board has multiple overcards. In this particular hand I’m not sure I should even be raising with a pair of 4s but someone ahead of me may have been sitting out, I don’t remember. I do think I should probably have raised a lot bigger if I am playing the hand, maybe 5-6 bb?

I’m wondering if, since I’ve cbet the flop here, should I fire again considering that card that came? I’m pretty sure my plan was just to check and potentially call depending on the cards that came since I had showdown value with my pair. Thoughts?
