      I think just betting the flop is best, but if you think UTG will bet, then C/R.

      Considering that he limped UTG/MP2 or whatever, he could have a set or FD, which he will call with and you need to protect against.

      UTG seems a maniac.. :)

      Check raise flop would be awesome.. and a big one, too

      It wouldn't help, tho.. probably

      So just bet, bet and hope another diamond doesn't fall or that he went to war with 99, 22, T2, TT, T9 :)

      I´d c/r flop. He´ll give you enough action with any flushdraw or pair.

      Realised should have c/r flop when that T showed up at the turn, the only card I didnt want to see, but still couldnt let go of my hand (hey he's a maniac! he could hold A2 ofsuit here).

      Unfortunately for me he turns over T9, lesson learned (and payed) :O
