i can dodge bullets, baby!

i was supposed to go broke today, except they forgot one thing: i can dodge bullets, baby!

looks like i forgot how to plat and then had a total recall. but no, i had such a bad luck in the beginning - it's ridiculous. king high flush vs ace high flush(that's not omaha, right?),etc. also today i never won after pre-flop all-in. villain open-raises, i 3-bet my aces, he 4-bets me and i shove. what did he have? K4s and hit 2pairs oh well whatever. my BIs were $5 so after about an hour i've had ridiculous stacks at some tables($18-$20+), so my risk was higher. but traders love volatility and so do i:

Hero (UTG+1): $10.76
MP1: $10.05
MP2: $9.68
CO: $5.95
BTN: $8.95
SB: $3.86
BB: $4.51
UTG: $9.74

Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is UTG+1 with 44 of clubs 44 of spades
UTG raises to $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, CO calls $0.10, 3 folds

Flop: ($0.37) 77 of spades QQ of spades 44 of hearts (3 players)
UTG bets $0.05, Hero calls $0.05, CO folds

Turn: ($0.47) 33 of hearts (2 players)
UTG bets $0.05, Hero raises to $0.40, UTG raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $10.61 all in, UTG calls $8.84 all in

River: ($19.65) JJ of spades (2 players - 2 are all in)

Final Pot: $19.65
Hero shows 44 of clubs 44 of spades (three of a kind, Fours)
UTG shows QQ of clubs 77 of diamonds (two pair, Queens and Sevens)
Hero wins $18.70
(Rake: $0.95)

when i saw turn i thought "alright he hit his flush" but..there is justice :) he protected his dollar with 9 dollars in a very questionable situation. i personaly hate 2 pairs: they can only beat TPTK but noone in his mind commits that insane amount of money to TPTK..unless he has a very short stack.
oh and another observation: at 5nl most pots are multiway, 5-way pots are not uncommon so my robotic c-bets out of position(aka "gay bet", "donk bet" etc) put me in a tough position: i open-raise in an early position with narrow range, like AQs+, JJ+ etc but i always get a few callers and most often i raise flop with TPTK, get a few callers and then someone squeezes the pot. given my SPR, it's i'm commited and it's an easy-shove, however my hand is rarely the best. i have decent sample size in my PT on most of the players so i can devise optimal strategy but it's pretty preflop all-in with K4s. move up to where they respect your raise etc
