      I would make smaller bet on flop, like 0.30$ or so, because if he has no diamonds or something decent, he would just fold without playing his trash hands anyway. Imo, it's an instant fold on such a raise, there's no way someone could c/r 5x times with a bluff. There's no point in playing further, you have no redraw, just TP2K which is an easy fold.
      If he just calls the flop I would bet again on blank turn, because he could have some hand he can't fold, but which needs some improvement to have showdown value.

      Sounds good to me. Most players calling the flop will have Kx or some kind of diamond draw, as well as some made flushes. The more passive villain is, the more often he'll just call again with worse hands on the turn if we bet.

      When he raises even if we're ahead he'll probably show us a monster draw or the Ad, against which we're barely ahead. No reason to get cute there, just folding is best.


      Hope it helps.
