      FLOP
      Don`t really want to see diamond on the turn, that`s why I raised. BB called initial bet with something like Ax, Qx, Tc, Jc, Kc.

      Anyway, I think, I had to shove on the flop.

      Hello,

      I would usually cbet bigger on the flop here to maximize my value.
      When BU shoves I like 3betting and your sizing looks good. He might go for a call down with a weaker Ax or a draw but if we shove he might be inclined to fold.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi!


      At the time I also thought he might call lighter, but as played my line still is very strong. And Ax might fold anyway.

      As played, what`s the plan, if a diamond hits on the turn, if he calls?

      If a diamond hits the turn we simply give up.

      We can't really continue on this card as we are likely to just spew our stack.
