      What made me fold was this mind process - what kind of hands do these donks (i just assume that anybody who open-limps is a donk) limp/call the most? Small pocket pairs, so i though that he probably flopped a set and that he's making a significant improvement of the size (=raise, i just love this expression:D ) of the pot for value.

      yeah, if you haven´t seen him making moves, then b/f is fine. You should be against set a lot of times. If you think he can raise there sometimes with draws or bluffs then shove is also fine
