      As there were 3 diamond cards on the turn, I would go all-in there to defend my straight.

      I still had $4,50 on turn (3x the pot size), wouldn't it be too much of an overbet? But it seems right that I should at least have bet pot-size.

      What? Only better hands will call you and a smaller bet will do the same trick therefore:

      Bet Pot Flop, Bet Pot Turn and unfortunately I give up on the River. this 4bb bet on the River just screams for a call and you cant beat anything.. your splitting at most.

      Best regards,
