Hi, villain is unknown, but seems fishy.

Should I slow down on the turn ?
Did I play it fine ?

Not sure how he seems fishy, if he's unknown.

I really don't like your play on the turn here. This is a terrible turn card and overbetting all in is very likely to get us called by everything beating us while folding out everything we are ahead of. What are we expecting to call this? The next worse hand is AQ, and it's unclear if he'll call that for his entire stack. If he does, he probably holds the Qd and has a lot of river equity anyway. Meanwhile, we are crushed by AJ, AT, A6, 66, TT, JJ, KQ, diamonds... yuck.

If you want to shove turns, size your flop bet more appropriately to set up your turn bet. $2 would have made the turn shove less than pot.

Personally I think a better turn line here is to bet like $2.75 and fold to a jam, or simply check/fold, we're not beating much in this guys range after this turn card comes.

Thanks Dave, it makes sense.

I labeled him as fish due to his weird stack size.
