Your hand was crap, but you got focused on the pot size and decided to put a little amount (1bb) compared with what you could win. At this time, seeing a flop like that, noone remembers there can be someone at the table with 99's. Eventhough, the right way to play would be all-in, even that some others say that you should go try to rob more. It would always be difficult to let that go. Thats why the best play would be fold pre-flop. That is the disadvantage of trying to play with low cards.

First of all i'd like to apologize for my english You wrote that 5 players was on table. After u raise, u get 1 raise and 2 calls + you called preflop. So if you were 1st to raise that mean u go from the position with need really strong hand, and 43 suited or not is very weak hand!!! The best play was to fold and be happy with decision, becouse u only judge your move when u see your hand prefolp in this situation. Best of all with yout poker in future
Posted by Rainman: I played tournament in PokerStars, there was left 10 persons in total and 5 at my table. I post bb. My cards - 3s4s. There was 1bb raise and 2 calls. Pot was 48000 and I had post 1 bb for call, so I call. Flop - 9d4d4h. I bet 2 bb, one fold, one call and raise 3 bb - I call, other person fold. Turn - 3h. I bet little less than 2bb and go all-in. Opponent call. Showdown - opponent 9h9c. River - Qc. I was eliminated.

Looks like you should have folded to me too. Those 4's on the flop were lucky, the 9 trips as well for the other guy, but just don't get in to this kind of situation with rags such as 34, suited or not.
