in my head you were a small favourit.
I would probably bet the pot at the flop. When theres a flush-draw on the flop it gets a bit scary, and i think the correct thing to do would be to protect the hand at that point. If he calls you after a bet like that, you KNOW that he has something.
When he called that 1/2 pot bet, he was hoping for an Ace,flush or another 6 obviously and getting good odds for calling you.
Im not very good at playing Holdem, but in Omaha i have to protect hands all the time. Not sure if that applies to Texas Holdem thou..
Edit: I just dont get the fact that he called with A6 suited when he got a reraise... I say that was a bit of a bad beat sir.

What is this preflop? Either call, or if you want to 3bet, do it in the right way. At least 6 bucks. So villain is getting good odds to call, even with his semistrong hand. Play at the flop is debatable, too. One will rarely be way ahead, but can often be crushed.
You do realise that some people will call anything with an ace ... and a suited ace makes it harder to fold. If you do not get a read on the player, then you will probably need to go slow. Unfortunately, once the flop was down, you were always going to find it hard to get him to fold ... because he had the nut flush draw, and he probably figures that he had a total of 9 outs or a 1 in 3 (roughly) chance of catching a diamond on the turn or river.
A tough situation to be in and its happened many times to me with KK or QQ because some people will not fold an ace.

I think you got some bad habbits from fixed limit . Make it a rutine that your 3bet preflop is atleast 3*his raise, post flop bet between 3/4 pot and pot, stop with the click raise(I call it a gay raise) you force opponent to atleast call and here you beg him to shove.
Click/Gay-raise you tell opponent that you are strong and make him pay minimum for the information. Either charge him for the info or don't give him the info. But this situation was doomed on the flop

Without reading the other posts, dont you remember our "QQ-thread"? I think it was on BRM, where we discussed that you have to play QQ very aggressive, because of the single K10+/A9+ callers, i'd reraise like 7-7.5$.
Well, believe 95% on BRM would lose that hand, excluding me offcourse
