      Hi Daisuke,

      Why are we checking the turn?

      We have an easy valuebet versus diamond hands and Ax hands. 89 also picked up a pair if he called that.

      If we didn't bet the turn we should bet the river for some thin value but we now lost a good chance to get value from a lot of hands (K may be a scare card for small pairs but Ax should call still).

      Considering the board I'd bet flop/turn/river (river not too big because the Kx makes pairs less likely to call).
