      Preflop I think that call is ok ...he raise 1st 50% of SB.

      Flop he checked (cbet 67%)so I did bet .

      Turn Is good card for me I think and I bet again.I can represent that Q and I still have J and K that I can hit on the river and win against his uncomplete draws or so.

      River terrible and fold.

      The Flop is a very standard check and give up spot. We don't have any diamond in our hand. having a diamond helps a lot, because we can not only continue semi-bluffing the Turn if we hit a diamond, but we also block off possible flush combinations from our opponent's range, making it less likely that he has a hand which can call on the Flop.

      But even with KdJs, I would still be very inclined to give up here. The board is just so low and coordinated, that I don't expect very much fold equity.

      The turn bet doesn't serve any purpose. Most of his hands are going to be pair + straight draws. The Queen doesn't scare him one bit. Maybe he folds A7, but he is going to call 66/76/56/89 etc to another bet.
