      Yea, you call flop once, you have a strong draw FD+Gutshot which can easily improve on next card and he should pay you something if you hit it.

      Paying there is in a way good thing, because your hand has good odds to get better. I think your opponent has sth like set or weirdly played AA, KK (due to that call on a min raise PRE).

      On the flop, you have flush draw and Gutshot, but if you hit, ask yourself: what worse hand would call you? Hitting the flush would be 2 obv there, and while playing OOP you might miss one street for value there. And if you don't hit it, you're in some sort of a trouble and you can't add value there.

      hitting on the turn, donk-bet 1/2 there to protect your hand against sets (and to add some value).

      Hello MeAmor22,

      You can easily Call the flop cause you still have decent implied odds. :)

      Best Regards.
