      Hi,


      If you think UTG2 can have diamonds and play them like that you should probably just jam at some point (the turn most likely), it's hard for him to have us beat he's need 55/22/KK/AA.

      It's fine, you can ask around we have in this very forum people that play AK that way in UTG2's shoes ;) I doubt villain has a flush or he would have bet the river. Maybe he has a set with 55/JJ (dumb donkbets with JJ by the way but people do what people do) and is scared of the flush, but I don't think he's scared enough to check/fold them. He might have some KQs hands if he's calling 3bets too much out of position but it's not that likely with our K blockers. I doubt we even get a split AK to fold. So to sum up, we get value from very little by betting and we're likely not bluffing anyone off anything better if we shove 1/2 pot, so checking behind is fine.


      Hope it helps.
