This was on a zoom table, with only 2 hands on the opponent.
I know that 3-betting is one of my weaker areas of the game so I was trying it out here. I keep changing my mind about the hand, especially when i see what he had in the end!

Any pointers would be appreciated.
Thanks

I went aggressive on the flop to just take it down.
On the turn he checked it and i thought he was scared of the flush and I had the ace of diamonds so I didn't think twice about betting here.

How was the SB playing? If they were tight, I'd muck to their raise preflop. If they were loose, I'm just calling preflop.

3-betting here with someone behind is just asking for trouble.

Since there's also a limper in the pot, I prefer just calling pre.

Since you did 3-bet, a c-bet seems like a good idea, but on this kind of flop a villain is hardly ever folding. He has so many pocket pairs in his range, and he'll put you on AK and call at least one bet, because you almost never have a 7 or a 3 in your range. The turn looks a pretty good barrel card, but villain isn't going to fold hands like JJ/TT with a diamond and he might have hit a set. I think I'd just check it back and take the free card, as you have plenty of outs against pocket pairs.

Ok, thanks a lot for taking the time to review the hand.
I think a bit more studying is in order on 3-betting and post flop play before I hit the tables again!

i only had 2 hands on the opponent so I didn't know how he was playing
