Exactly opposite of your quads hand, and you did the exact opposite of the villain in that hand, so yes...good fold.

He raises small, and you re-pop pre-flop with what stands to be the best hand right then.
perhaps your re-pop is a bit TOO small, as it does not price out connectors that might have been spec raised from the button by LAG players, but then you really do not want to run out hands like 66/77/88 when you have QQ either. So i'm not saying it is REALLY BAD...

It comes semi "wet" again.
Harkening back to your re-pop, and the fact it might have let a wider range stick around, this could be semi dangerous to you.
You lead well though with a board over pair, for better than half pot ($1.10 = ~75% pot).
That is a nice solid bet for your holding which should give pause to most one way draws.
He flats.

His flat here is definately a "danger sign" of sorts.
While it would not "freeze" me on many turn cards, I am definately slowing down if he calls another bet on the turn.

3rd straight card comes, and a 3rd h; that is about as bad as it gets for you.
Still, with a board over pair I think I'm betting SOMETHING here so I get Js to pay me.
You bet $2.43, with is about 2/3rds pot. That is a bit much for me, I'd be more prone to bet about half pot, but it certainly is NOT "out of line".
He calls again.

There is the danger sign we were looking for with our 1 pair hand.
What the HECK could he call with on what is now a VERY coordinated board that we are ahead of?
About the only thing left is an AhJx, and that is simply NOT ENOUGH of his range for us to lead the river. We might call a small bet as a "crying call", but we simply cannot call a big one...

Comes 5h, and puts the 4th straight card AND the 4th flush card up.
Without a h, we simply cannot consider calling any but the tiniest bets here.
Villain launches all in for about 2/3rds the pot, and we simply CANNOT call that on a "hero call".
If he bluffed us, so be it.
But if we were ahead at all before the river, the Villain probably spiked the flush with either a Jh or Ah.

Good fold.
