      I thought there was almost no strong hands in his range for raising because of call range,so I 4 bet to protect from draw.

      my bet got called ,and still I thought it could be weak range,and FD didnt complete ,so I c/r to make him float .
      my play was okey?

      There are actually plenty of strong hands in his range.. J8, J9, JT, T9, T8, QT, 9xhh just to name a few. You can just fold to the raise in my opinion because of the low playability of your hand. If you call, you should do so to get a safe turn and get the rest in, not to check/shove a turn that completes all his hands like you did here.
