      SB: $1.19 (59.5 bb)
      BB: $2.65 (132.5 bb)
      MP: $2.45 (122.5 bb)
      CO: $0.83 (41.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $2.23 (111.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A 5
      MP raises to $0.04, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.14, 2 folds, MP calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.31) 5 T A (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.22, MP calls $0.22

      Turn: ($0.75) 3 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP folds

      Do we bet/fold on such board all the way to the river and fold to any raise?

      Because we expect top pairs to call us a street or two, and there might be a lone Kdx that might call us all the way to the river.

      On the river we are usually pot-committed, and if another diamond doesn't show up, we have to stack. If it does and we cannot check behind, we fold.

      Does it sound like a good plan?

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We should bet 3 streets for value with the intention of getting called by worse Ax hands (AK,AQ, AJ).

      I would also most likely not fold if raised since villain (if unknown) can also raise with Ax hands to protect (and can raise Ax with diamond).
