      Hey Stevie8,

      Preflop call is fine. 3betting is also an option.

      Flop check/raise is ok. Sizing is non-standard but doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem. Check/calling is also possible because the texture is pretty dry overall.

      9 is a bad turn card since it completes the only possible flop draw. Might be fine to go into check/call mode here since it's difficult for opponent to call with worse, although the advantage of betting is that you protect from any random diamonds.

      River is a bad card, check/fold is fine.
