      Ok to check behind with the 678 of diamonds? Or am I missing value?
      What should I have done if he barrelled river. I think I would have folded.

      bet more on flop because of drawyness.
      Bet(/shove) turn for free showdown if a diamond rolls off.
      Remember, that it's HU and you have top set in a 3-bet pot.
      He doesn't have to have straight or flush if he ch/r turn.
      He can have 9d9 f.e.
      So you'd miss huge value imo.

      What did he have?

      Best regards,

      yeah, I´d also prefer bet/shove turn
      He would very often c/r flop with flushdraws and he can easily c/rai turn with two pair or pair+fd, so don´t really see why you should go to pot control on the turn
