I don't see a problem with folding this preflop but I think you played it fine. I would prefer a check raise on the flop though.

its foldable preflop, and all in check raisable on the flop.
this is why i would check raise all in
-if all the money gets in on the flop and he has AA, you are a favorite to win (i think this might depend on if they have the A of hearts, but its close enough)
-you have better fold equity. plus, a CR represents more strength than just leading out, especaily if its the decision for all of somebodys chips.
-its a bigger pot to steal, and you want to steal this pot.
-nobody can raise you and put you to the tough decision you had to make. if and when the money goes in, again, its in on the flop where you usually have a ton of outs twice.
-this hand is very hard to play on the turn if you bet the flop and get called, but dont improve.
-you actually give them an opportunity to make an incorrect call, you are favored against alot of hands.

Pre-flop . . . this is a very playable hand and you should at least call.
On the flop . . . Dude, pair with an openended straight flush draw to a royal flush . . . .
no way I'm laying this down.
I probably bet 1/2 the pot here to try and scare up some action. I'm looking to either get raised or put it all in on the turn and get a call from someone who feels they're pot committed . . .
Check raising all in is also a viable play. Even when you call, you're still the overwhelming favorite in the hand, as he's only drawing to 9 outs (6 hearts and 3 kings) . . . and you have a redraw on 3 of his outs.Jason75: Ok, you check and the button bets 400. Now what?
Beavis68: You play poker.
Jason75: Darn, I was really hoping for canasta. Maybe Gin.
