I honestly kept calling because I figured he was bluffing, however at the turn I was looking at what I had and wanted to see if I could pull it off! Btw I am up 21 bucks this week just playing 1c2c before anyone starts to ridicule my donk play!

Congratz! nice win ! so little chance to win that hand but you got it. I wish play draw will not be your habit .Good for you villain intend to trap you ( not bet big on flop ), not bad I think cause he just lost to straight flush ( small percentage )

Xgcsnippy, great outcome. I note you say that you thought he was bluffing. I was just wondering what hand you put him on, particularly given his position on the table and everyone had folded to him. I also wondered what thought you gave to pot odds in determining the way you made you calls given you had two,pair and a flush/straight draw potential.
Nice one always nice to hit those two outers on the river. I think it is a sign to go and buy a lotto poker ticket and try for the straight flush. I am in favour that best hand pre flop should always win and it did

I bet he was furious.
I don't think your play is too bad, though it is bad. I also wouldn't play 4s pre-flop. You're way out of position with the bb still to act and there aren't many flops that look good for you. I'm curious as to whether you would still have called an all-in if the river was a blank such as 9c. There's no way you can put him on anything since you check-called all the way, you wouldn't imagine that a card like 9 would make a difference. Then again, if he raised pre-flop, any card could give him the over-pair, so even if he was bluffing, could you afford to keep calling and just hope that he doesn't bluff/hit the river?
In your defence, the c-bets were small and raising would have probably got you out of the hand. If the guy had previous for poor bluffing and being aggressive with high cards, then you could have maximised your profit by playing this way. There's no way you can put him on trips let alone a full house from his pre-flop play. And tbh I can't be bothered to work out if your implied odds for AK, JJ, or A7 were in your favour. Still, your play did seem risky and could have just as easily lost you your whole stack rather than doubling it.
