      Pre-flop your raise is a little bit too low. There's already one limp in the pot, therefor 3BB+1BB for that limp would be better.

      At flop your opponent checks which is sign of weakness, but you show one too - your raise is only ~40% of pot. to show your strength it would be better to bet around ~66% of pot. In this case your opponent probably had shot at flush, bigger bet maybe would have scared him away.

      Ar turn your bet is too small again and in my opinion unnecessary. Your opponent already called you at flop and your hand is very weak to risk your entire tournament because of it. In this case, if you bluff, go all-in, in that case you at least show some strength. I would have checked, just to see last card for free, remember in this case all pressure is on your opponent, if he raises at river you can always fold and get away with smaller losses or re-raise if you hit something good.

      After opponent check-raise, you should have folded. It's better to walk away with something. With cards like that your chances before river were probably around 20%
