      I'd make it around $2 on the flop to account for the coldcaller, and probably jam any turn against an unknown, they'll show up with top pairs with or without a diamond and likely call it off.

      As played the stacks are awkward, i'd probably bet less around $2.7 to maybe get called by more worse Kx hands with or without a diamond, and call it off with a "fuck my life" feeling.

      If you think he folds Kx when you bet that turn card then as sad as it sounds it might be a check/fold, there isn't much he can bet with besides a flush when you check to him, most people with Kx won't bet that card even if they have a good redraw they'd rather check behind and hit it, and he can't bet/call that flop with much else that we still beat.

      Hope it helps.

      Thanks. This is great advice.
      I know its wrong to assume so much, but I figured since he potted the flop that he was protecting a hand (Kx, hopefully KQ, AK). Hence the reason why i went for it on the turn.

      The check/fold line on the turn is probably the way to go and really I should've known. You're right, most weak Kings aren't betting on a flush board so I should've just released.
