    Hi taxed,

    Generally I would not check-raise here for a couple reasons:

    1) It's play money, and they aren't folding. So there's very little "bluff" component to a semibluff. And you may have less outs to the nuts as well, since someone else can be on a flush draw. In particular with the K not being a diamond, you may get extensive action from someone with top pair and a flush draw like KdQd, as this is a type of hand people will sometimes play strongly (play or real money).

    2) While you are building a pot for when you make the nuts, given how loose/bad the play money tables are you can actually draw cheaply and build the pot after you get there as they'll tend to do it. It's going to be a more profitable line generally. If you can leverage fold equity semi-bluffing can quickly become more profitable, but in a game with opponents who will give massive action after you get there, it's usually more profitable to draw cheaply to the nuts and extract big value after you make the hand.
