Just wondering if i should check because im drawing to the nut flush and no one calls even once on these flops without a club or a pair.

Seems to me that checking is a serious loss of value, betting is pretty straight forward here. I think you're just being results oriented (they both folded). Sometimes they don't have anything. We will absolutely get called by worse hands, including the Kc, Qx, and other pairs+club combos. And we still have outs/hand equity to fall back on the few times we're behind. Bet away.

Fair enough, I was probably only gonna get 1 small bet out of a turned pair anyway i spose and they would call if they had a diamond so yh i like a bet. I dont think i like my sizing though maybe closer to pot would be better.

definitely bet here. you gotta find ways to pick up value if you want to win and this is definitely a good spot to do so as people with decent pairs or clubs will at least put in one bet now. imagine if he had a hand like qj or kq without a club then a club rolls off and if u bet, he now folds. gotta get the value on the flop =)
