    Preflop is good defend. Its probably ok to bluff with this if you also value bet some 4x or some 55+ in flop.

    When villain check-raise turn he reps mainly Kx, 44, 33 and some QdJd, A5 maybe? Most of time you will still have outs alive so 20% pot odds make it close. But sometimes you also will be dead. This is spot where quite few will make light check-raise imo. Of course also Kx might be willing to play for stacks.

    In river I would give up next to always. Thing is that even strong Kx now obviously split versus other Kx. Also many will try to bet 4x in river in hero shoes as its second nuts but 4x should be mainly check back. So villain can easily go for check-raise with Kx and allow you to bluff also.

    Well as combo this is probably ok as bluff as you dont block any diamond so if you want to bluff then probably fine. We might get 33 to fold or some of those occasional busted draws. But those draw combos tend to be limited as villain is unlikely to check-call flop without some showdown value.
