There are two things that stick out to me in this hand.

First is the preflop raise size, as it's too big. A standard raise for this blind level is to between 2.2 and 2.5BB plus one for each limper. Raising to 4BB here is bloating the pot, which I don't want to do when shorter stacked.

On the turn, when the opp calls the flop c-bet and I don't have a made hand, I need to check/fold the turn and river if my hand does not improve.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
