      no info on villian - didnt want to 4b, would rather play a 3b pot in position and leave him with aj/aq etc in his range. I wasn't affraid of the flush, because the king is on the board which only leaves him AdQd and AdJd maybe AdTd, otherwise i think he would stack off with JJ+ and AK, and any good diamond.

      I think your line is fine you obviously can't fold TPTK after calling AK there, and barring history that you don't have it's going to be hard to get him to stack off on the flop with anything that we beat if we raise, so calling hoping he barrels the turn again because he doesn't know what else to do is fine.

      When he does we don't have enough money behind to simply call again, so it's a clear shove hoping he kinda committed himself with a big diamond.

      Hope it helps.
