In my very inexpert opinion, you made the ONLY right move considering your stack size relative to the blinds.

What happened really sucks, but try to rejoice that there are players like "gustavo felt" out there making crappy decisions....we need them.

you ain't folding that
(except in MAYBE some bubble situations in some very SPECIFIC event types...in short, almost NEVER)

You shouldn't be calling with it very often here
(only if the table is SO NITTY that you may not get ANYONE to call a jam. But even if they all are that nitty, 700 in there when you jam is a big chip up for you, and all folding gives NO chance to see a suck out)

After that, it is all down to luck.

Absolutely nothing else you could do in this situation, you just got on the wrong side of variance. Chalk it up to bad luck and carry on, bad beats will happen.
