      At the first sight this seems a kinda ugly flop on whitch to flop a straight. But then again, we can take out all his Axs, Kxs hands. Still, i am protecting my hand against single card flushes and re-raising him on flop and betting big on turn and river. What if the fourth diamond comes out? Do we continue to show agression, even if he checks first?

      I'm fine with your line as played, he probably won't call the river unless he has Ax and if he does he won't fold it to any bet.

      If the river was a diamond I'd check it back, he has a lot of random pair+diamond hands in his range for calling down and we won't be able to make him fold any of these. We could try and get him to call again with Ax but I don't think it's worth it.

      Hope it helps.
