Alright, so I think I played this hand pretty well (I could be wrong though lol). I don't have much a read on the villain, he showed up a few hands ago. Flop is pretty standard. For the turn, my reasoning behind the check, is that I have the Ad so I'm not worried about a 4th diamond coming off and feel I can maybe induce villain to bluff river as it looks like I've given up on the hand. And on the river, with villain checking (I figure hes looking for a cheap showdown), I decided to go for value. I went a bit bigger because I figured if he's calling like $4 he's calling $7.
My question is whether my reasoning for the turn check is okay or not? And also whether I should be checking behind on river?
As far as the "as played" aspect goes, I think its a no brainer but would still like to hear what you think. Thanks.
