Capping was indeed the way to go. Unfortunately, I didn't.
He turned over QTo, much to my surprise, as I somehow had completely missed the possible straight. I believe my response was, out loud, "ohhhhhhhhh", the sort of disappointed moan when you realize that you've missed something obvious. Disregarding the possible straight, the only hands I could put him on that would warrant being this aggressive was KJ (meant split) or AJ. Not entirely realistic for him to hold AA or KK, I thought, but there was the risk. 66 could have been an option, but the turn checkraise just felt like a slowplayed flop. Had I come up with QT as an option, I would have capped without hesitation.
As a side note, I really feel for the guy. I had only 4 outs to beat him, and I think he played it right.

huh? nono, the question is simply "do I have the best hand here?" I'm counting on him to call if I re-raise him, the discussion was regarding whether or not my hand would hold up more than 50% of the time.
