      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25/$0.50BB (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      MP2 ($14.15)
      MP3 ($10.00)
      CO ($50.00) (Hero)
      Button ($6.75)
      SB ($30.25)
      BB ($9.25)
      UTG ($39.50)
      UTG+1 ($43.65)
      UTG+2 ($28.93)
      MP1 ($7.75)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:spade: , Q:heart:
      1 folds, UTG+1 calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, 1 folds, SB calls $2.25, 2 folds

      Flop: 2:diamond: , 8:diamond: , 5:diamond: ( $6 )
      SB checks, Hero bets $5.00, SB calls $5.00,

      Turn: 5:club: ( $16 )
      SB checks, Hero bets $14.00, SB calls $14.00,

      Well, there's an obvious draw on the board and I don't think I can give a free card. Disregarded pot control here and protected my hand.

      River: 4:spade: ( $44 )
      SB checks, Hero bets $8.75, 1 folds

      Well, since he checked he probably doesn't have a flush or FH. If he has a busted flush draw he's not calling me but he may call with a smaller PP if he called all the way with it. So I put him all-in.

      Final Pot: $50.55

      My doubt on this hand is about the turn bet, it's a little bit risky there. Should have I opted to check behind for pot control and called a river bet if the river wasn't another diamond?

      I would check&call river bet. Even pot size bet won´t often fold their flush draws and of course against flushes you´re beaten.

      Exactly, so I bet to extract the most from flush draws. I don't want him to fold his FD, I want him to call incorrectly.

      Why do you wan´t to build big pot just an overpair. If the fourth diamond comes and they bet out 1/3rd of the pot, would you fold then?

      Actually I don't want to build a big pot with just an overpair. But here I have to choose between pot control and protection, I chose to protect.

      And I made a big bet on the turn not only to make villain draw incorrectly but also to make the decision on the river easy. No matter what card comes, he's got so little left that I have to call him even If another diamond hits the river. But if another diamond comes and he checks, of course I'd check behind instead of putting him all-in like I did.

      Notice that because of my large bet on the turn he can't even bet 1/3 of the pot on the river. He's got around 1/5 of the pot on the river.

      If you´re pot committed why you don´t put him all-in on the turn?

      I don't think he's calling an all-in on the turn with a flush draw. Maybe he would, I don't know, IMO bets around potsize get called more often by flush draws.
