      Hi there Gerv . In this hand preflop is standard , after a limper I raise to 4BB in position . The flop come kind of dry IMO , but with a scary overcard , but after hic check I decided to cbet to see if I could yake this pot down . On the turn , come another overcard , and here I have to check behind . The turn brings a blank . Throughout the hand I think he was playing a flush draw , the reason for calling my bet on the turn. On the turn and river no diamonds come , so on the river should I bet to try and take the pot down ? Also , lets imagine that I never thought he was playing a FDraw . After he checked/called the flop , checked the turn , and checked the river , should a fire a barrel on the river ?

      If he has a busted flushdraw on the River, is he ever going to call the River with Acehigh when you bet? I do not see a specific reason to bet the Turn or River here as it is not for value since u dont have toppair or an overpair
