when you get you chips in with the best hand at that moment in time there nothing you can do

looking at the eventual winners play pre flop i assume hes all in on a flush draw flop every time to be honest if you lay that down on the flop you deserve a medal my friend

i guess the only way to avoid that situation was folding pre flop.

The player with 4h Jh shouldnt have been the hand because all he is betting is a flush and he got lucky. You should have raised a bit higher on preflop to say 3 or 4x BB maybe scare him off although some players are just google eyed when they see pretty colours that match so he may not have folded even had you re-raised preflop. I think you did the right thing ALTHOUGH from my experience I rarely win the hand with 2 pair as something comes along the river for trips or a flush or some straight by someone who has a 7 3 offsuite.
