      On flop I should reraise smaller, it will be enough to protect against overcards and he is not calling much with worse hands. If he 4bets I think I have to fold, he isn't bluffing often.

      Howdy,

      I'd say you can call. Flop is not awful for you, because there's no FD and Jack would give you FH, I don't expect him to donk J9/79 so big and there's not too many worse hands he's going to call your raise with, but if he shoves it would be kinda ugly.

      Good luck!

      yeah, but when I call, I don't protect agaisnt Qx, Kx, Ax hands. There is good chance that he has A8 for example.

      Nah raising there is totally fine if you are ready to go broke. Since he bet so big into the pot then I often expect him to have some kind of hand but often against some aggressive opponents I'd just Call because such a donk is often a bluff and to keep them bluffing you can Call and play on turn. But of course you have to be scared of such cards but if you know that you wont get any more value from him if you raise (if you were against some aggressive opponent).
