    Bets preflop and on the flop are fine. On the turn, I'd have led out with a bit more, but your amount is ok too.

    The raise on the turn, however, throws up a warning flag to me. The only hands that should be doing that are 77, 55, AK, or diamond draw/bluff (but diamond draw should be flatting most of the time, to try and hit it).
    Instead of pushing back, I'd have just flatted their raise and re-evaluated after the river.
    If so, the third diamond on the river would have saved me those last chips, becuase the only thing you can beat is a total bluff or worse K (or chop with AK). I also wouldn't put them on a worse K, because other than possibly KQs, they shouldn't be calling you preflop.
