his and your line look fos. though its not an unreasonable board for him to check back a monster in position, since you are not going to cr flop all that often. i probably call and call a non A or diamond river, but would love to hear alternate/better lines.

standard play is to reraise preflop. After calling I'd play it pretty similarly, but would not be happy about folding the turn.

I dont really like reraising preflop with these stack sizes, I likle the flat call.

As for the hand I would call his raise cause it looks fos, and re eval on the river.

Every time someone takes a line like this I'm like WTF this is such a stupid line I'll call that bitch down and then they show me a set and I'm like o... I'm stoopid. I think he'll have a diamond draw sometimes but most of the time were toast.

i've seen people take this line with such a wide variety of stuff. 7x, Tx,(for free showdown) some draws, some air, some sets, and any better hand that turned you. not sure his range is particularly weighted but i'd generally call once and see what he does on the river. that said i don't mind folding because it is a real marginal spot and any equity we have on the turn is often lost by being in such a tough spot on the river. i don't quite know how to explain it, but if you work the math out, (assuming)the turn call being incredibly marginal and (assuming)often being lost on the river makes the turn closer to a fold.
