    A hero call is a call of a fairly sizable bet when all you can beat is a bluff, or when the situation is a textbook representation of a situation where you are beat but you determine you are ahead anyway.

    For example, calling someone down with queen high, no pair because you are absolutely sure that the way they represented their hand they must have had some lower draw and can't beat queen high.

    They are called hero calls because in normal tournament situations the call would be terrible, and so you are heroic if you are able to read an opponent's hand so well and make an extremely difficult call.

    I play poker tables here locally in CT and I must say a "hero" call is basically either a heads-up deal or when there're at least three players playing the board....The "hero" call is when someone makes a hefty bet or "all in" bet and the "hero" calls it, being confindent on his/her hand and actually hits, wins the hand/pot. These kinds of scenerios do happen in poker often but, mainly when someone slow-played a good prospective hand and when the game is still running amidst the turn and the river.

    It's called a hero call from being the hero at the table and keeping bluffers honest.
