      1)Would it be better to push the turn here, I think that only hands that can beat us would stay in then, not sure though...
      2)What should hero do if a diamond/club falls on the river?
      3)If a diamond falls on the turn and villain pushes, hero has to call i guess because of the outs on a FH?

      Hi Zeffke!

      1) pushing the turn is not an option because of the reasons you already mentioned. But a potsize raise to ~14 would be ok, too.

      2) check behind or call depending on the opponents action. Imo you cannot fold to a half potsize bet here if your opponent goes all-in.

      3) Exactly. It can also be the case that villain just wants to use the next :diamond: to bluff you out of the pot or he can even have only a flushdraw or two pair. So a fold isn't an option here.

      Good luck at the tables!
