This should be a X/Raise on the flop right?

This hand really bugged me afterwards, not because I think the result would have been any better for me (results orientated, in this case probably would have been worse) but because I have a tendency to play draws too passively OOP and despite knowing this, continue to do so.

Is my post game analysis correct? This should more often than not be a X/Raise with the FD and backdoor straight draw?

I like c/r flop. You can barrel a lot of turns and if he jams you have decent equity.

Awesome spot for a flop x/r. The flop is great for your defending range and you can barrel any card between 5 and 10. Not to mention your diamond outs.

I'm raising because I find it offensive to be cbet at on a flop like this and am looking for any excuse, but you should have some flats with flush draws and K high is a reasonable one with a smidge of showdown value.

If we were looking for good spots for flop x/r this would be up there

It's ok to c/c w/ specific stack size.
Yes people cbet too much but getting jammed would be awkward.
We need combo draw to gii or NFD at least.
