      Well, I think you played the hand correct. He just sucked out is all but make a note on his preflop looseness.

      That for sure and post-flop he’s a non-believer as well.

      Yea this was a bad beat.
      But if you didn't know villain would do this kind of stupid stuff, you could have played this a bit better by adjusting the bet sizes a bit.

      Your 4bet is quite big. 0.40$ would do just fine.
      Then OTF you don't have to bet that big. Half pot is ok.
      By using the sizes mentioned above you still have a comfortable shove OTT (less than 2/3pot).

      That way you get the stacks in but keep villains range as wide as possible.
