      Thought he might be floating me on the flop since I had cbet quite a bit recently or maybe he has flush draw. After his huge raise on the turn I though I’d check and see how he played it, especially since I can give a free card if he checks behind and hope for another diamond. When he made the pot size raise I definitely thought that he had floated with something decent and was trying to take the pot, I didn't put him on a flush anymore, so I went for a check/push. OK play?

      Presuming your opponent is going to float is kinda risky, you're just giving him a freecard if he has a high :diamond: . If you were sure he was going to float it's ok, but I don't like presuming that because against most opponents I just get checked behind on the turn.

      I have the ace of diamonds so a diamond is fine for me on the river, the only draws i risk giving a free card to are straight draws which seems very unlikely on this board.

      Yeah but if he has a high :diamond: he'd probably pay you on the turn to see another card. This is really opponent dependant, if he's very agressive and likes to float it's the best play.

      I think you played it very good. I think you are ahead most of the time in this situation, but I still think you have to raise the turn. And since you're not very deep after his bet a shove is what you should do.

      I like your line. Often enough players take stab on the turn when checked to them, especially on lower limits.
