      Villain is 36/16/0.5/25 VPIP/PFR/AF/AFq (Only 25 hand sample)

      Decided to bet almost pot on flop for protection, and discourage raise from Ax hand. Planning to fold to raise.
      When villain calls I put him on a pair, probably with 1 diamond. Of course chance exists he has flush already, but I have case 4 and FH outs.

      Turn blanks, and I decide to bet half pot so as not to commit, planning to shove on a blank river. Planning to fold to turn raise, and c/f if another diamond on river.

      I now think that as I had villain on 1 diamond draws I should be shoving turn for max protection. Thought I could save $5.60 if another diamond appeared.

      flop bet is fine
      I´d prefer making a bigger turn bet to 3.5$ to get more value his flushdraws and and that would call me down, like AK/AQ
      river is easy shove, he would call you down with Ax and often just checks back with missed draws and Ax hands
      Don´t like turn shove, since he then likely would fold Ax and also his flushdraws
