      On this hand I didn't love the turn card too much, but didn't really think it was too likely he had a 7 given his play. My bet was based on the idea that I didn't want to give him a free card to hit any other draws on the river.

      On reflection I think I'm not convinced the turn bet was too smart, checking and risking a diamond on the river was probably the best play. Just hope it gets checked to showdown, or the board pairs on the river?

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I wouldn't really shove the turn. :D He will already have there pretty hard to time to Call your shove like that. I'd most likely Bet ~$2 and ship the river. But obviously if you consider him being capable of calling you there light then shipping isn't wrong.

      Best Regards.
