      Hi, cozacu!

      Is something missing in the hh? Why does MP2 raise and not bet on the river?

      Anyway, to be honest I'm not really a fan of your preflop call. The MP is not exactly superloose, he won't have many worse aces in his range; you don't even have guaranteed position as you're giving odds for the BTN to come along, and you might end up playing a multiway pot with a hand that does not play well multiway.

      (I *might* call if the blinds are really bad players that might call with all sorts of Ax and Jx in their hands).

      Postflop I think the way you played is fine. By the river you represent either a missed diamond draw or Ax. Your villain probably reckons a missed draw will not call anyway (not even a small bet) and by shoving he is isolating himself vs. Ax (he can't rely that people will fold any A there). I'd say his range is at least AK, maybe 99.

      As I see it, on the river it's a good fold. Preflop I'd have folded as well most of the time (except if I had decent reads on the other players).
