      Hi, pre and F I think its pretty ok.
      Turn I made a raise cause I think he can donk here not only 2 pairs+ but also with AQ, Qx with straith draw or flush draw or something like A4 and I wanted to put money in before board gets uglier.
      I didnt ship cause I thought he could fold with draws so I made raise as big as I think he would like to call with his weak range.

      Most of his turn range consists of good equity hands that are not sets and 2pair since those c/r flop most of the time and that means 2 things:

      a) you have little folding equity
      b) your hand is ahead of the range he calls a raise with.

      This means you should raise, which you did. Now we have to discuss sizing. With your sizing you leave about $18 behind for the river so you are basically commited. At the same time, he doesn't fold after turn because he has too many TP or good flushdraws so you should shove there. You don't play just against parts of his range, you play against all of it.
