      The flop is scary as hell, he could have any piece of that board and since he's sortof a station he might not even fold a pocket pair to just one bet. Kx, Qx, Jx, Tx, Ax, any diamond, he'll stick around with all of those. I think you can just check it back and see what happens unless he has an ungodly high fold to cbet%.

      On the turn we can't fold and raising will likely get us into a split/dead situation, as even bad players can let go of a top pair when the board is 3-flushed 4-straighted and you shove into them. So even tho we're probably calling for a split there is still a chance he has two pairs or a 9, and he might not bet the river, so calling is fine.

      On the river it sucks we're calling $20 to win $20 and i really think we're in a split/dead situation by then, i can't see him going 3 streets with worse than Ax. I'd give it up mostly and call sometimes unless i have a better idea of how that guy plays.

      Hope it helps.
