      You cannot fold your overpair. Villain will c-bet anything on this flop.

      Donking is bad. You cannot represent much and he might easily raise (with anything) your donk not believing you a thing (would you then call?) since the flop was hardly to help you and if it did then you would have waited for hit c-bet.

      You might c/r on this flop. But if he calls e.g. with 8x or some kind of straight draw, then you will have troubles on the turn since you are OOP. Therefore, further bet would be required on the turn. If you check on the turn then he might may a move on you.

      However, I would prefer calling the flop (since the board is not dangerous) and then donking the turn. By this way, you can get cheaply to the river without being afraid of making a moves by him.

      Just bet out on the flop, you have to get value from some kind of overcard type hands. Otherwise as played, I am just Check/Raising it, folding is a way too weak.

      The risk with c/r on the flop is that you isolate yourself against better hands (overpairs). Of course there are some donks who might call you with overcards (especially with AK which they do not want to fold). But this move on such a flop increases a variance. Another problem with c/r is that if an overcard hits, you do not know where you are.
