      I call ip w/87 (this is not what i usually do), on the F i hit st8drw so call his bet and was also thinking that i maby can represtent a flushdrw.
      When the flush card hit the T and he bet.

      Now i was thinking can i raise the T or should i raise the F?

      His line seems to really fit two diamond broadway cards or A :diamond: with the second card possibly being a non diamond that has paired the board. Maybe a set, but you'd think it'd be a bigger protection bet on the flop. He seemingly has a strong hand and the diamonds do not seem to worry him at any point.

      So unless you feel he is running a pure bluff (and how can you know this on zoom?) you can't really expect the diamonds to be outs for you to an unlikely winning 8 high flush, leaving you with only 6 outs on the river, 14% to win and not much fold equity, I'd say its best to fold here on the turn.

      Raising the flop as a semi bluff is a good option IMO, because you're representing a monster draw or a set, there's not a lot of hands he can continue with and if he does, you know you're beat. And if he continues but then you turn a 5 or a 10 that's not a diamond, you're stacking him for sure (Unless he outdraws you on the river of course).
