I would have raised pre but he was a station and I didn't want to build a pot OOP with 66. I feel I played it bad but don't know what I should have done different and would like advice. Thanks in advance.

So since you got all the money in and u say u played it bad, im guessing he flopped a flush?

that's not helpful at all. his min-raise on the flop is awkward, so you might want to go ahead and make it 3 bets on the flop. the way you played isn't awful tho, either. if you know he will bet on the turn then i'd go ahead and see a turn and crai on a non-diamond, like you did. looks fine.

I don't think this was played fine at all, once he min-raises the flop you should have shoved. Were you that scared of a flush, or were you trapping?? I'd have led the turn as well.

read above post - i said if he thinks he can get a crai on a non-diamond turn it's a good play, if not, make it 3 bets on the flop.

By your turn raise you are abviously not giving him credit for a flopped flush and rightly so with your outs to a boat anyway. I think this is a mandatory big reraise on the flop charging him for his flush draw.

Oh well,

I still like to pot the turn as he will get it all in with top pair and a decent diamond. I see no need to c/r this turn as I don't really want to be all-in vs a flush draw even with as set.

Please don't be results orientated, the way you structured the post seems that you may be as earlier posters pointed out. What's important is the way you approached the hand against what his typical range of hands would be I felt you got good value out of the situatio.

Welcome to the STTF keep posting hands and GL
