      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, 8.
      4 folds, CO raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, SB calls $0.13, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.5) 2, 3, J (3 players)
      SB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.30, SB raises to $0.90, CO folds, Hero calls $0.60.

      Turn: ($2.3) 3 (2 players)
      SB bets $1.15, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.3.

      That was exactly the card i didnt want to see. I think he either turned a boat or possibly better flush.

      might as well be top pair or overpair. I'd raise/shove

      Howdy,

      I'd check back flop and try to hit my outs because I would hate getting raised in that spot as we are behind of his c/r range and stacks are awkward - we are calling flop and he is going to shove a lot of turns and unimproved turn would leave us with broken heart.
      As played I think you can shove. Calling is an option, but I think he may have enough Td-KdJx in his range, so 4th diamond can kill your hand. You are stacking off against FH/better flush anyway, but I'd wouldn't let him catch his backdoor if he has single 3x/Jx with big diamond.

      Good luck!

      I would prefer betting flop, if they don´t have anything, you can take pot down with 9 high which usually is quite good result
      I would shove turn, his c/r range is very often worse hands than just sets or bigger flushdraws
