      Bet more on flop like 0.90

      I dont like the small bet on the turn giving him odds to call with anything. Once you bet turn you are committed since he is mid-stack so before you bet, ask yourself if you would call a shove. If the answer is yes, then shove yourself.

      Personally, I would prob shove turn since another heart could spell disaster.

      Do you have any reads on this opponent?

      I like your pre-flop re-raise.

      Maybe a little more on the flop like TheBrood said. I was thinking $1

      What hands could you put this guy on?

      With that board, you would basically be making your decision to call based on reads.

      There are a lot of hands that I could see someone calling your pre-flop raise with here. He was likely on a draw and hit.

      However, if he's known to try to steal, maybe you should call.

      Without any reads, I would probably fold, though. Afterall, you only have a pair. Not many players will push all-in with only a pair, so you're probably beat.

      EDIT: One thing I notice at this stake, EVERYONE tries to trap. So, ignore the check raise by him. I would give that a sign of strength rather than weakness like people might think.
