Hi adi,

I agree with dirt. What I take of this action is strength. You've made a decent sized turn bet into a 4 way pot remember, it's clear you have a big ace (at least), and he doesn't care. And there's a caller. He can reasonably have 99 or JT here. I'm totally comfortable folding and continuing on with 100bb's here.

I folded in the actual hand but I was thinking that is he capable of check-raise shoving with turned flush draw or maybe turned FD+OESD with hands like or or etc.
