      Hi,


      Turn card isn't the greatest since KQ and flushdraws got there, but against a guy who is limp/calling there it's probably better to just push the turn with only a 3/5 pot bet left. A 4th diamond would be disastrous and he can still call with worse Ax hands, JT, some kind of combo pair+draw and other junk we can't even fathom.


      Hope it helps.
