    I would not re-raise the river for value with a straight here. With seven players seeing a flop and the flush completing the chance of someone having a better hand is too big. And when your opponents do not have the flush they should fear that you have it and not pay off a 3-bet with an hand worse than a straight.

    Rather than 3-betting with the straight you could throw in some bluffs with flush blockers on the river here (offsuit hands with Ad or Kd).

    I think made hands bet on turn a lot (e.g. flush doesn’t want another diamond to kill action, sets and 2pr want to protect against a 4th diamond).

    When we get to river there is about 1000 in pot, right? If so, I’d like a bigger bet closer to pot where someone can bluff catch with a pair and comfortably call a raise.

    I agree its hard to 3! into two people without the flush, and as played you got two people to get 2/3 pot bet on river, so not a bad outcome at all. Nice hand!
