      I'm obviously playing Check-raise on the flop but original raiser checks which i think is strange. He should be C-betting almost all of his raising hands in this spot. I think might check sets here and occasionaly some kind of KJ hand.

      Turn comes and I start betting my hand for value and Original raiser raises me here. Can I ever fold here? I really cant see what hands I'm beating here that he would be checking the flop with except 33/Ax diamonds. Maybe he raises here with KJ diamonds? Seems like a reallsy strange spot for him to have a bluff? I make the call with no plan basically other than I'm probably getting stacked on any non-diamond/straighty. I'm not even sure I want the board to pair.

      River completes flush and he checks it back.

      Really not sure about the turn spot. Any help regarding this would be appreciated.
