      Liked played, fold on the River.
      On the Turn I would think about pushing or calling and then push on the Turn if I hit anything (A, K or another Diamont for 9 Flushdraw Outs + 4 Overcard Outs) or give up my hand.

      Not 100% sure but I think you meant on the flop here, if I'm not wrong which I am half the time :D

      Anyway, assuming that, with two opponents and the potential flush draw, and the lower cards, my opponent could've already hit a set hoping I'd re-raise, call me down on a draw, or drawing to a straight. If I pushed against two opponents I felt at least one was likely to call, and if my hand didn't improve (not likely to) I was investing dead money into a pot.

      Should I have pushed anyway?

      I think I agree with you that I should've folded the river, no one showed strength so I called, but again I was likely way behind.

      On the River you can even bet against these minbets (that indicates something that beats my A-High hand for me).

      And yes I meant the Flop in the sentence. ;) I would prefer calling the Flop and pushing or maybe just reraising, depends how much is in my stack, the Turn if I hit my Overcard or improve to a Flushdraw. With a FD and OC on the Turn we would then push/re-raise as a semibluff (maybe to advanced?).

      But calling these minbets on Flop and Turn is ok as well, but on the River you can fold.
