    Hi hendo,

    I'll admit I'm baffled by your preflop actions. You provide no reads what so ever, so I don't understand what your plan is here. But absent reads, firstly I would be 3-betting the initial raiser. When the action comes back to you at .40c, this 4-bet sizing is also off. You have made it a crystal clear committing amount for all villains. Consider what % of their remaining stack this is to call your 4-bet:

    V2: 100%
    V3: 57%
    V6: 65%

    No one can realistically ever call this and fold later (well they can, but it would be pretty horrible), so the sizing makes it much more difficult for opponents to make calling or raising mistakes. Make this more like 1.50 imo.

    So hopefully the above also answers your flop question. Everyone is committed. Folding the top overpair for $2 into an $11.25 pot would be ridiculous.

    Incidentally, despite your preflop actions, V3 did in fact make a pretty atrocious mistake calling $3 after this action came back to him with you flat/back raising huge and V2 3b/calling off in a multi-way pot... TT is never good here, and often in 3rd place, and he is getting no where near the right price to try and flop a set... unlucky, hope you marked this guy with a note so you have reads next time... when you have a very strong hand and he seems to have a hand he likes (as was here, cold calling a 3b), then making large value bets (even overbets) seems like a good adjustment vs. him.

          You need reads for this, which you didn't have. If you've got some squeeze happy players behind the idea is ok! Your sizing sort of deters anyone from shoving light though, so you need to have a more well defined plan for how to proceed when you get the action.
