RICHARD7787 - Raises $4 to $4 (Good raise here, nothing wrong with that)
GRAVEN29 - Folds
ISAN - Calls $3 (Only in BB, so that widens range teeny bit)
JEFFQR22 - Calls $3 (EP, may have a top ten hand, but let's assume not, without a raise)

*** FLOP *** [4d 8d 4h]
ISAN - Checks
JEFFQR22 - Checks
RICHARD7787 - Bets $5 -----> Weak flop bet? (A little weak, I would've bet more like $8 or $10. With this bet you're allowing the diamond draw to continue)

JEFFQR22 - Calls $5

*** TURN *** [4d 8d 4h] 5♥ (Not exactly a scarecard, I don't think pocket fives are in your way)
ISAN - Checks
JEFFQR22 - Checks
RICHARD7787 - Bets $15 (If you're going to bet here you might as well have pushed, because of the pot size)

Ok, comments posted throughout, and now here's for your decision.

How much do you have left? If you have the $15 to call and some to spare, I'd make it. It's not likely you're up against a four, probably a lower PP. If you lose to pocket 8's or fives, that's just a mistake from them that they didn't have to pay for. Really all you have to worry about here is Aces or Kings.

I try not to get involved in pots this big at a new table, it's just too hard to proceed without SOME kind of idea of what they hold.

the BB could hold anything 66+ I think, because it was cheap for him to come in, he won't put either of you on an 8 or 4, and the 5 isn't scary for him either.

The EP I think has a middle/high pocket pair, but the chances of his high pocket pair being aces or kings isn't that great, so I call.

You were probably facing Jacks, Aces, Kings, or Ace and a Face. You could be up against pocket fours or if you had a lunatic at the table, A 4 or 4 5 suited. A lot of possibilities. Did you win the hand or did you take a beat?

Wow... Those guys played that hand terribly and you pulled down a nice pot! Neither of these guys should have even seen the flop. Congrats!
