      Since you want to get it all-in on river you should make bigger raise on turn and on flop (shortstacks are bad players and will call these). As played river indeed is a push.

      I suggest you to play with players who buy-in for full amount as to get more $.

      I dont like your river bet. Why did u do it ? Your hand isnt super strong and i dont think that he gonna call with worse hands.

      I like it as played, although I would bet a little bit more on turn. Betting river is still usefull imo, since there are still worse hands he can call with.

      I would just minR pf against shortstack.

      Then just bet bet bet when I hit.

      hi
      raising 4xbb is too much preflop especialy against a shorter stack
      you can make a case for raising 4 bb if you are over 200 bb deep depending on the player you are against .
      against 100bb or less make it 3x or minraise so you can have a biger pot/stack ratio .
      as played bet more on all steets . pushing river is fine and you are geting called by worse a decent amount
