      Hello numbnutter,

      Why do you donk the flop? Without any information I'd Check/Raise the flop.

      As played, depends against what kind of opponent we are. Against more reasonable opponent it comes the question if he could have flushes in his range since it's the only thing what we beat. There are already couple of better FHs possible and we hold the worst. So therefore it's still possible to Bet/Fold, although if we expect him also to even have some backdoor flushes then it's hard. But now again, I just don't see many clubs in his floating range there, so therefore I myself would be towards Bet/Fold.

      But the hand could have played much easier if we already Check/Raise the flop and then wouldn't even have such a spot on the river since then we had to ship ourselves.

      Best Regards.
