      I would bet the flop a little bit higher, because of the flushdraw. He get too good odds by this half pot size bet.

      Check on turn is ok, if you want to check/raise him. If you think he will check behind, then I would bet the turn.

      I actually don't think the flop is a great spot to cbet.

      Villain can have a lot of Ax combos plus a lot of pairs, that are better than ours, will call. Flush draws also have good equity and we are building the pot OOP without much hope.

      Personally I'd ck/fold the flop.

      As played we must be the turn. An ace is never folding and can still call with 88/99/TT/JJ/QQ with a diamond (maybe even without if he is a calling station).

      Thanks Bogdan I think you're completely right that it wasn't the best spot for a c-bet.
