      pf: If this table is loose I don't mind pumping it up to 9BB or even 10BB to commit those bad limp/callers and get more value from them.

      flop: A pot size raise will be enough here, this way you still can consider your option on the turn IP if anther diamond hits the board.
      Anther point to consider is the need to balance between protection and value. When you overbet you obviously get maximum protection but you also get maximum fold equity which decreases the chances to get a call from worser hands which loses you value.
      It wouldn't change much against this fish as he is willing go broke for any price with his FD but do take this point in mind in your future play.

      Good Luck.

      Hi,

      On flop he has pair+2nd nut flush draw, so his call here is OK.
