So, I guess I'm a complete fish for this one. I just don't know why I can't let crap like this go.....

Any suggestions? (P.S. I know I know....Click Fold.)

when I first saw it, I was hoping it was going to be a limit table, not NL.... it would make seeing the flop alot more viable, but still risky. NL, this really needs to be mucked preflop unless you know you can bluff the opps off of basically everything... which will not happen at this level.

I do not like the raise on the flop at all. You have a draw, that may or may not get you the best hand and if the opp calls, you know you're way, way behind (the only hands that should be calling your raise are an A, a set or a higher flush draw).

The turn makes it more interesting, becauase you now have a low-end straight. I like the sizing of your bet for the turn, as at this point, you should have the best hand.

The river, the only thing to be scared of is a diamond or a board pair. You got the diamond and a higher flush draw is definitely within the opps range, the entire hand. When the opp makes that big of an overbet at 2NL, they're going to have a better hand the majority of the time, so you need to muck, even though you have a flush.

on the flop he/she has the draw to the stone cold nuts, you want the A, sets and higher flush draws coming along imho at the river though I am slamming on the brakes, and probably folding

Roomik, another thing I'd have done, most likely. Call the flop, which may make the opp fire again on the turn... if so, then raise the turn.
