      My question is should I call on the turn? I calculated the Outs for my flush draw is 16% vs the turn pot odds which is 28%. I should not call on the turn since my outs < pot odds.

      Hello slashng,

      You may as well even consider raising it on flop against such a small donk and if he donking into you a lot. And as played the turn is totally fine with the implied odds you getting there. Nice hand!

      Best regards.

      Howdy,

      He's obviously bad player, so I'd raise his Flop bet. We can take a free Turn card if needed. And he seems aggro and bad enough so I wouldn't mind getting it in there.
      Ofc taking cheap cards isn't mistake, but I like to play it a bit on aggro side to take control of the action and it would be easier to extract value if we hit.

      Good luck!
