I do not like the call preflop. Calling a 4x BB raise and being out of position sucks. I think we are dominanted a vast majority of the time.

Am I reading this wrong or did you fold for $7.45 more in a $29.45 pot?

I like betting out on the flop here and you made a good sized bet. His call should tell you what you need to know if you've played with him at all.

If you're not going to call a reraise, making any sort of bet on the turn here with the pot size and his stack size is goofy. $6 is just about the smallest amount you can bet to protect your hand if you're ahead and you HAVE to call if he raises you unless you have some sort of fantastic read that you a smaller than 20% chance of winning EVERY TIME. In your place, I would have just set him all in on the turn. If it turns out that he has AA, KK, QQ, 66, 44 or AQ, you can make a note on him so that you can alter your play in the future.

Sure looks like he hit his hearts, doesn't it?

I think your line looks pretty similar to mine, though I'd be more likely to reraise PF to isolate... Depends on reads, though.

And yeah... I fold KQo preflop for another bet normally, but not at NL50 - it's just tooo loose.
