I think your in a tough spot here and I think you did it to your self by only making it 2.5BB in a limped pot,
Now if my awful math is correct you put $5 into a pot of $17 (think that's right) I think this only made it harder on your self.. Either way you are probably definitely behind here.
Flatting only leaves you with $33.. If you miss I guarantee a turn bet is coming in which case your faced with another decision with worse odds
of hitting then before..
Now your other option was shoving.. I don't think villain is ever folding I would guess he either has an A or a set of 6's or 2's since you only made it 2.5BB (probably unfortunately a set) so the only way you can win is by hitting a diamond (possibly without pairing the board) your also putting in $40+ dollars to win $27 so I think I'd say no to shoving..
I might just go with folding here chalk it up to a mistake and move on taking my 12.5BB
loss instead of taking a 100bb loss. (again not so good with the math)
^^^Just my opinion and I'm sure the better players on the forums will correct me if I'm wrong anywhere (which I may well be)
