      How to extract more value?

      Since i was passive pf and made a cbet on flop and one called i thought if when the pot was big enough if i 2nd barrel he would call could it be i just simply checked and give him an option of trying to bluff me or free river card which could improve his draw...how can i make more value but thus he could have hit the river better?

      All comments welcome.

      first, its a clear preflop raise for me

      as played I check the flop and let the CO make his cbet.

      If you want to play the hand you should raise preflop.

      As played I would donk bet 2/3 or pot size because board is very drawy, you don't want to see another diamond nor a 7, T or Q.

      Turn, the same bet 2/3 to pot size to protect again.

      raise pre bet bet bet... when he has a made hand he will always raise your donkbet when he has a draw he will sometimes cb so I like your donk. But I definitely dont like your l/c pre with 50bb.
