I like your lead here on the flop as I think that V5 often won't CBet this flop and you've got a good chance of taking the pot down on the flop.

I'd probably prefer to check/call the turn (to a 1/2 pot bet) here as 87 just got there and villain has no real reason to be scared of a non-diamond 6 if he's sitting with something like two pair or a set, so I doubt he's ever going to fold to a bet.

When he shoves, you've got an easy fold. You're getting basically 2:1 which means you have to win 33% of the time. I think he's only doing this with value hands like two pair +, which you have 18% equity against.

If he's also doing it with flush draws, then your equity improves a bit but he has a lot of pair + flush draws combos so I still think this is a fold.
