CO 17/10 30 hands
BB unknown
I opted to call to let the CO come along, also I feared that if BB is holding QQ or AK he may fold to such strong action.(do I level too much?)
On the flop, there are not too many combos of AK, and his bet doesn't look like he has something worth protecting. I put him on JJ-KK so I don't raise and let him bluff the next street.
On the turn the third flush comes(should I be worried?) I didn't bother much because I don't think he has enough suited diamond cards in his range, the only one would be AdKd and he will likely slow down with the flush to extract at least some value.
What would you do differently?

Hi Pray,

The BB is making a big sizing for his 3B oop preflop, I would rate this to be a legit strong holding, and we cooler all of those, so I think we should 4b to about $1.50. No reason to try and make this a multi-way pot imo, and CO is nitty so he may not call this big a 3b anyway, unless he's got a pocket to try and set mine us. Not good.

Flop play is fine, we don't have to worry about the nut flush draw, if he's got it we'll get action later on this board. Definitely call the turn shove, it's not even close. If he holds the Ad he's 3 times as likely to not have the flush as to have it.
