Well the money didnt get all-in on the flop because I wanted to just call and see if a diamond, K, T, or 8 hits the turn. If he's drawing and he makes his draw on the turn, I can hope he plays it soft/slowplays it and then attempt to pair the board on the river for my full house on the river to take all his chips. If he's aggressive on the turn I can consider getting away from the hand (like I said, only if a diamond, K, T, or 8 hits). If he's aggressive on the river and I didn't hit my FH, I can consider doing the same.
Is this a bad way to play these situations? If it is, someone needs to explain to me why so I can stop. I like having options and not just straight pushing with 2 cards to come and so many possible draws/ I could already be behind anyway.
