CBet larger on the flop ($0.16 would be good here). When he raises, i'd just call and start check calling on most board runouts. We have blockers to the top two sets ( he'd most likely raise QQ and KK pre too ) so the only value hand that beats us is 44 which is an extremely narrow range.

He could also c/r this flop with something like JcTc which we are ahead of. There are some opponents that you can comfortably shove the flop raise here though.

We can call flop and get the money in on a brick turn card, but it would put us on a tough spot if turn brought the J of clubs for instance.
Excluding sets, we have the nuts at the moment, so let me sum it up with three words:
I'm all in!

Hi Espada,

Like birdayy [& GP] says... I would cbet larger as we want to charge f/ & s/draws a premium for seeing another card. I would tend to make it a pot size bet though OTF & shove if faced with a 3bet. If Villain calls... I would be shoving OTT [assuming f/ & s/draws miss].

Good luck

BR Tony [aka Prodigy237]

Have to agree with the above. If he has 444 then good for him.
