What did they muck,

I guess at least a straight but possible a small flush.

Preflop and flop are fine, probably want to donk the turn though. This is a turn card that he may check back a lot to pot control big pairs and avoid getting himself check-raised by a flush. And there are a lot of scary river cards (to him) that can further kill your action. But if you donk out on the turn players won't suspect you're this strong, they may decide you picked up a flush draw with a single big heart and raise a hand like KK here, which facilitates getting stacks in before the board gets any more scary for his holding.

One other thought, if you can afford to play 50NL (i.e. you're adequately rolled for it) then you can afford to upgrade your tracker to the full version. It's like 1 buy in to make the upgrade. You are really doing yourself a disservice by playing at this level without any reads on opponents. Having a tracker is a good idea as most of your opponents will. Even if you don't though, it's important to actively observe, make notes, etc. so you can make better decisions with more information.
