      is it ok? on the turn villain can't call with a lot of worse hands, but we are in trouble, if he ch/raises.
      of course we are also in trouble if we check here and the river is a :diamond:
      villain is 26/20/3 af /54 hand

      I would say that betting the turn is the right play, the flush draw is only small part of villans range although another diamond would not be a good card so make him pay to draw.

      Also 9T or 56 would get a free river but would more often than not fold to that turn card unless maybe a 9 :diamond: or T :diamond:

      Bet 1.70 on the flop for value.

      On the turn bet >>> check.
      We have a very strong hand, there's no reason not to bet it for value.
      There are some flushes in his range, but we can play perfectly against a checkraise because we can calculate the odds easily and we certainly don't want to give freecards vs 1 :diamond: -FDs.
      And don't be afraid he's checkraisebluffing - he's not ;) .

      +1
      also we can b/c turn with our set, so I also like betting turn for value
