      Fold preflop. Been a while since I said that. You are playing against an unknown UTG, your KJs is not good enough to defend here unless you have huge skill edge against your average NL25 unknown. :)

      After calling pre, I assume you planned on check/folding flop. The turn brings the Q which hits his range and a flushdraw that doesn't hit him because most people cbet 100% of flushdraws on flop. If you had a made hand, how often would you lead here? Q is a card he'd bluff and value bet if he has it. It doesn't make much sense to lead any good hand here so I expect your bluff to have less chances of success because of this. I think check/raising makes some sense.. As played, definitely bet river. You do not represent a flush otherwise and he doesn't have a flush often enough. KQ with diamonds and AQ with diamonds make sense from him. Maaaaybe QJ with a diamond. Otherwise he will usually just fold to your bet. His turn calling range can be non FD Qx and there are more of those than flushes.
