      I think call on flop with gutshot + flushdraw was correct, however I doubt about the situation on turn. I have Q high straight so only KQ beats me here, but could take the pot with diamond on the river. Set/higher flushdraw(weak suited ace/K:diamond: J:diamond:) are also possible. So if it was right:
      1) to call bet on the turn and try to get a showdown as cheaply as possible when board paired;
      2) shove - kick possible higher flushdraw out and expect to make a flush against KQ/get called by set? :f_confused:

      Hello koosMaras,

      Preflop: Actually I wouldn't really recommend limping such hands in the beginning, just fold them to avoid any kind further mistakes like Calling with TP or anything like that.

      As played
      Flop: Calling with our FD+OESD should be fine, since they are giving us pretty good odds.
      Turn: And I'd likely also Check/Raise all-in here, as you did. Well done! Just unlucky river.

      Best regards.
