The answer to questions like that purely situational.

The preflop raise does a couple of things. The first is that it "supposedly" get people out of the hand who have nothing - there will always be calling stations who will call anything, but you should be able to spot them easily. The second thing that it does is let you know who is going to be trouble in the hand. If you make a big pre-flop raise, and then another raise after the flop - and you get called both times, then you need to look carefully at the board to see what it is telling you about your opponents hand. Unless you have the nuts, its best to look before going all-in, otherwise you'll just wind up being all-out.

preflop raise does a many of things. - position. - number of the players in the hand. - your stack - game: cash or tournament. -your image in the table. -stage of the tournament. of course.... bet is good... call is not good.

I think your raise pre-flop was correct

the interesting thing in poker is that even with hindsight, u cant always figure out what to do. I have gone all in with KK to get run over by 6 8 (but it was suited, lol), other times i played it too soft and they caught up. best to say that you need to know who ur playin, and what they most likely will call to see the flop.
good skill everyone

this would all depend on position position position. A hand like that I would probably have went all in preflop.

I agree, A good raise and see what happens with the flop and a good read on your opponent helps.

Unfortunatly that's poker and its better to just accept it at that. I'm not saying this to be an idiot, but I don't think that if you had a million chips you would have gotten him out of that hand. He had an up and down straight flush draw. There are so many outs for him he's as close as you can get to perfect flop without flopping the ace of clubs as well. If you had bet differently preflop it still would have had to have been reasonably high, though obviously you could make him lay it down alot easier preflop.
