Very frustrating, any advice is welcome.
The best advice I can give you is to think of this in the long-term, and not to focus on the results of this one hand.
Your money went in as an 80% favourite.
That means for every dollar you put in the pot, you could expect 0.60$ in return. (0.8*1)-(0.2*1)
I will gladly take that bet all day long.
Any techniques I can employ to perhaps limit my losses or avoid the situation entirely.
You WANT situations like this!
You can't focus on this one hand that you lost. If you played this exact situation a hundred times, you'd win 80 times!
You made the correct decision, and it will bring you money in the long run.
That you lost in this particular occasion, that's just variance. If your decision was correct, but the variance hit you, you need to smile and carry on. Even though you lost, you actually won by making the +EV decision.
Once you realize this, you'll have a better grip on tilt as well.
