      Preflop: This would be a pretty easy raise to 12-14 cents here. We want to raise for value (AQs crushes all of their limping ranges) and for isolation purposes (much easier to win in a heads up pot, regardless of our hole cards)

      Flop: I would just pot bet here instead of taking a passive line. We have 50%+ chance of hitting a diamond/K/A/Q. And I would just keep betting the Turn, and probably bet all rivers if I improved.

      AS played,

      Turn: c/c is a huge mistake. Just raise the pot now, we want to get as much money in as possible vs worse hadns

      River: This is sick, since this is a limped pot there's a good chance someone has a full house. But I'll not fold the nut flush here, maybe if you had 5d7d you could argue for a fold.
