Maybe it is not right to call preflop since there is a chance of a raise afterwards.

On the turn, i thought that his range consists of sets, straights and flushes. I dedided to go all just to get calls from sets before another diamond, 5 or 6 comes.
Although, it does not make any sense not to have raised a set on the flop at such wet board. Maybe i was just steaming and wanted him to have only the hands i beat...

It was zoom,I did not have much info about him.
Stats:vpip 14/pfr 8/3bet 0/af 1/WTSD 19) over 121 hands.

Moreover, i would like to thank you for your good work. Your replies are great and detailed!

Hi 3revos,

Do we have any reads on V6? Are the players behind us aggressive? Passive? Loose? It's tough to comment on the preflop call without any info, this is a spot I would sometimes fold, sometimes call, and sometimes raise depending on the reads.

I definitely like the flop semi-bluff bet. I also like betting the turn for value, and the sizing is good on both accounts. I really don't like the shove once we get check-raised. The min-check/raise is often indicative of a huge hand on the turn. I'm not optimistic a tight-passive villain such as this will ever do this with a set or straight, I would expect him to have a flush a fair bit of the time here. Our over bet shoving makes it even more likely that when called, we'll be looking at a flush. There are very few flush combos worse than ours and many better ones, so I think the shove is too thin, even if he sometimes plays a set this way. I think I would just call, and plan to call his river bet unless a 4th diamond comes and he bombs it, and take our hand to showdown without playing for stacks given the way this hand has played and the turn strength he's showing.
