      I would've played it the same way. Raise on the flop usually isn't good because you're not beating many hands and if you would raise the right amount, you would be commited to the pot. On turn his bet looks like protection bet from flushdraw & he seems to be ready to play for the stacks, which is a sign you're beat.

      I would raise him on the flop, his flop bet is weak and the board is draw heavy. Looks like he's cbetting and shooting a second barrel here.

      I see two lines that make sense: Either I fold preflop, or I call on the flop and RR all-in on the turn. Against a player with an AF of 10, I see my TPGK often enough ahead of his range.
