You made the right play- just got unlucky- you really have no choice on a 4 bb stack- but to put it in--

You're an 81 percent favorite to win the hand. This is just unlucky.
Don't get that mentality that the worst hand is better most, or all of the time..to say that a small pair receives some kind of favor...is only going to mess with you.
Stay in the realm of ...did I make the right decision??!! THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS!!!
Now sometimes we have to take stacks, bubble approaching or final table..whatever..into consideration, but those things also come into the mindset of "did I make the right decision?"
Any other thoughts, that we even give the slightest foothold to, will do nothing but take away from our ability to make those correct decisions.
Kind of like when people are asked their favorite hands..why wouldn't you want aces over any other hand? Best hand, best odds, best decision, my favorite hand, cut and dry.

You sir, made the right decision here.
