Additional info:
Villain's stats: VPIP46/PFR14/AF2.3
Hero's stats: VPIP40/PFR29/AF6.7

Villain started to be more aggressive when there were only 3 of us left. He used to show a few good hands, when folding, or when we were folding to his bets, hands like top pair, or straight draws. He also used to shove a few times on preflop when defending his BBs.

I was wondering if there was any sign I should have seen that maybe could have made me fold to his shove and/or if I could have played that hand differently so that I would maybe win it?

Thank you.

i'd bet more on the flop, why that low?

on the flop u definately like to get it in, so going broke here is pretty standard.

do a normal 1/2 to 2/3 potsize bet on the flop and after his reraise still get it in, well played !

Thank you both for taking time to check my hand here.
On preflop I was afraid he'd fold seeing a higher bet and I wanted him to get in.
