You got your money in with the best hand. There's nothing else you coud have done here. What kind of advice were you hoping to receive other than you just got unlucky.

im never folding this hand heads up,.. when villain min raises our open pre, a raise gets most of our chips in anyways so i jam pre on a 4 bet all day

I'll give a small piece of advice although this is clearly a bad beat post. You probably should have just shoved with your 4-bet instead of a min raise. BBFIDTS, ask Mercury he can show you where it's at.

I wouldn't say you should ALWAYS shove (or call a shove) in this situation but against this type of opponent....Definitely...
