    This hand is from a first level (100/100) of a live tournament and my stack is very close for the initial stack which is 30,000.

    EP raises for 300, MP calls, I am on SB with 4-4 and decide to call as well for set mining purposes. BB also calls and we're 4 hands going to the flop.

    The flop comes 2-3-4 with two hearts. I decide to donk, since I have a monster hand but the flop is very wet and I'm playing multiway and bet 600. BB calls, original raiser folds, and the player in MP re-raise for 3,600.

    I know that he does have A-5 (at least suited) in his range, maybe 5-6 suited but also many draws, lower sets and some overpairs which I beat. Still raising after I betted OOP into four players is a very strong move.

    What's the better move here 3bet for something around 11,000 - 12,000 or just call for pot control?
