Flop Line check - Weird spot

Hi All,

This hand popped up Wed. night, and I need to get a line check. In the 30 minutes prior to this hand, the table has gone action wacky. 2 orbits of everyone straddling has made it quite fun.

1/2 NL - $5 UTG STRADDLE
Hero - Mid 30s WG. - $460 - HJ - Playing LAG preflop/ flop due to table dynamics

V1 - Young BG - $280 - has been playing tight but definitely a thinking player

V2 - 50s AG - Stack covers table due to straight flush in a insane hand - playing fit/fold - very passive poker which took me time to get used too. Most Asians at my room lean gambly maniac side.

V3 - 60s WG - $380 - A lot of history. Capable of making moves. Plays position very aggressively. Likes to semi bluff, but overall pretty competent player.

V4 - 30s BG - $180 - Sat down about 30 min. ago. Read appears to be typical loose passive 1/2 player.

OTTH

V1 - SB
V4 - BB
V2 - UTG - STRADDLE

2 limps/ folds to me. Hero calls $5 with 4d4h. V3 raises to $25 on BTN. V1, V2,V4, Hero Call.

FLOP: $135 - 8c 7s 4s

V1 Donks $80, V4 calls $80, V2 calls $80.

Pot is now getting out of hand.

Hero tanks for a cpl min. Then raises to $280.

Should I have just shoved? Min-Clicked it? Best way to get value?

The pot got crazy big, really quick for this level. Common theme in my room is players fixate on the size of the bet, and not on its relation to the pot. 280 is a VERY RARELY seen size because of stack sizes but here, in this extreme case, it’s relevent because of all the money on the table.

Easy shove. I think raising to $280 looks more valuey and shoving can make people believe you are on a draw.

Shove. Pot is too big for anything else. V1 and V4 should call w/ almost any piece, and I don't want to give V2 the right price to continue w/ a draw.
