      Hello dallievas,

      Flop: I do usually just raise such donks, he may easily have pure air, draws or whatsoever. And we even have backdoors plus have a pair. :)

      As played
      Turn: Guess it's likely the safest to fold the hand than make the hero Call. But of course you can do it for good note in future and you will be able to act accordingly against his line while he is giving you somewhat great odds.

      Best regards.
